Natalie's Score: 92/100

Produced by Real Companhia Velha, Quinta Dos Aciprestes Reserva 2017 is a rich, full-bodied Douro blend of 60% Touriga Nacional and 40% Touriga Franca aged 12 months in French oak barrels (50% new). Dry, full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with dark plum, cherry, savoury herb and dark spices on the palate. Pour with a meat-lover's pizza or a sausage cassoulet. Drink or hold.

Food pairings: rib steak, lamb chops, pork tenderloin, roast chicken.
