for this region?


This up and coming region is situated in central Portugal. It became a DOC in 1999 and was then divided into three subregions:
*Castelo Rodrigo
*Cova de Beira (home of the exclusive local white grape Fonte Cal)
The climate is continental, with hot and dry summers and very cold winters. These conditions can be tricky, creating grapes with higher alcohol to tannin ratios, but with skill, great wines can still be produced. 
Whites produced in the region are Arinto, Rabo de Ovelha, Malvasia Fina and Siria. Reds grapes are Tinto Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Rufete, Bastardo and Marufo. The area is known for older vines, with small yields, but fine structure.

  • Encruzado Barrique Do Portugal Quinta Dos Roques Encruzado Jahrgang Portugal Encruzado Die Dynamischen 2009


    These Dao wines have progressed in leaps and bounds and show little in common with their ancestors of a couple of decades ago. This Quinta dos Roques is a case in point; the balance, elegance and hedonic pleasures of nose and mouthfeel is a far cry from the rusticity of the past. The Christmas Cake (what else?) scent, cherry pie flavours with m... Read More

  • Cabriz Colheita Seleccionada Tinto Dão DOC 2008


    Oaky in a nutty, sweet caramel, Cognac kind of way, but there's plenty of herb-scented wild berry and blueberry fruit to handle it. Licorice and cedar, too. This is broad and fairly taut on entry, showing a fine balance of tightly grained tannins and acidity. There's a lot going on in the mouth with complex flavors of nutty oak, sweet caramel, v...

    Vintage rating : 96TPredicted year : 2015 (Ready to drink now, but will gain 6 to 7 years after vintage. - Le Tire Bouchon Griffin 2012.)Superb wine and value. It has a intense cherry/ruby colour. Speaking of cherries, we have definite intense aromas of that fruit and of prunes. In the mouth, the red fruits definitely kick in to gear with slight...

  • Quinta Dos Roques Qunita Do Correio Dao Tinto 2009


    I have not had Dao wine for some time, and this mid-rank number from Quinta do Correio has bracing acidity on the palate with flavours of cranberry and wild red huckleberry. Soft and approachable, the wine is good value. There is also a smooth creamy finish that should appeal to a broad cross-section of wine drinkers. Try it. Read More

  • Quinta de Garrida Dão 2007


    Deep slightly brownish red, very hot nose. Dry and tart with very firm tannins, sour fruit. Short, dry finish. Read More

    Wine review by biondanonima

  • Quinta Do Corujão Colheita 2003


    Tremendously bright and fruity, full of blackberry and cherry, with a hint of black pepper and just enough dryness to keep things from becoming cloying. Long, lingering flavor that doesn't so much evolve as maintain its integrity the whole while. Despite being upfront and straightforward, it does so directly enough to be a great little wine for ...
