The characterful Quinta dos Carvalhais Tinta Roriz is a single-variety red wine of exceptional quality, an example of just
how good Tinta Roriz can be when planted in the Dão region. Quinta dos Carvalhais is a top Dão estate, where historic
know-how and experience combine with modern innovation to create wines of concentration and great elegance,
reflecting the diversity and enormous potential of the region.
The colour is ruby-red, very young. It smells quite austere - it needs time, and to breathe in order to reveal the
aromas of ripe black fruits, the notes of pine and hints of truffle and moss. There are also subtle glimpses of the oak
barrels in which the wine stayed 12 months. It has good body, surprisingly refreshing acidity and firm tannins
(grippy yet fine), and the finish is long and well balanced.
