Azulera de Raul Riba D'Ave Reserve Red 2016

25,50 €

Deep centre with a halo of bluish/purple hue. On the nose offers exuberance of black fruits with hints of vanilla and spice. In the mouth, it is dry, full-bodied, powerful in black fruit and vibrant in acidity, which makes it very drinkable. The tannin, although present, is quite tame due to the long ageing. The flavours are released in successive layers, with the presence of discreet wood making the whole very appealing. Long and spicy finish.

This is Raul Riba D'Ave's third wine in the Douro. This first edition results from wines from Muxagata, although the location is never as important as the raw material, the grapes. In fact, a number of traditional Douro grape varieties have a deep "blue" tone, which lasts throughout the wine's youth. In this case, even at a few years old, this wine still shows that tinge when you look at the halo of the glass. This is something quite unusual in most of the world's red grape varieties, but very characteristic of some Douro varieties, which are powerful in anthocyanins and polyphenols. Such elements are reflected not only in the depth of colour of this wine but also in the depth of its aroma and flavour.
