Natalie's Score: 89/100

A very full-bodied red wine with deep, concentrated aromas and flavours of black fruit and toasty oak. There's a good grip on the palate so decant 2 hours for maximum enjoyment. The winemaker Anselmo Mendes is a big advocate of the Dão region and its potential for dry red wines. This particular wine is a blend of the Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz grapes. Try it with meat lovers' pizza.

Food pairings: bean stews, roasted chicken.
