Wine name: Reserva Branco
Classification: Douro DOC
Varieties: , ,
ABV: 13.0

Produced from 80-year-old vines, fermented and aged in barriques.

Quite lactic and rounded, with a hint of candied peel and aromatics on the nose. Stone fruit, some tangy gooseberry with a nice salty, tangy finish. Impressively fresh and lively, with the use of barriques barely detectable.

The fruit feels ripe, and the Rabigato sings out loud and clear. Yet somehow the finish of the wine is a little blunted.

Everything is in its place here, but this lacks excitement.
