Quinta de Ventozelo Douro DOC Reserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intensive Aromatik von reifer Frucht und Röstaromen offenbaren sich in der Nase. Das fein verarbeitete und nuancenreiche Bouquet lässt keinen Zweifel über die Herkunft offen. Dass das Douro-Tal nicht nur grandiose Portweine hervorzubringen vermag, beweist dieser Reserva. Es ist ein filigraner, tiefgründiger Qualitätswein mit Struktur, Stoff und Harmonie, die im lange anhaltenden Finish zur vollen Entfaltung gelangen.

Since 1999, Quinta de Ventozelo belongs to the Spanish group Proinsa. The property is located in the town of São João da Pesqueira, in the Upper Corgo, an ideal place in the heart of the Demarcated Region of the Douro, on the left bank of the river, overlooking the Pinhão Valley. Quinta de Ventozelo is one of the oldest quintas in the region, as well as one of the biggest and best located. Until the property was bought by Proinsa, it was producing Port wine in bulk for big shippers from Vila Nova de Gaia. The property has an area of more than 600 Ha. The vineyard area covers 200 Ha., all of it classified with the letter "A" (highest ranking). About 10 Ha. Some believe it is a secret: for us it is simply ancestral wisdom, which takes into account different grape varieties, the quality of the soil and sun exposure levels. The vinification of the Port wine still takes place in our traditional lagares (tanks made of stone) where grapes are foot crushed, providing Quinta de Ventozelo with a wide range of quality wines. Currently there are 11 25.000-litre stainless steel tanks, with controlled temperature. We are redesigning the vinification centre to increase the production capacity while guaranteeing the same quality levels. There will be an integrated centre with two vinification plants: a traditional one to produce Port wines, and a modern one to produce still wines. The annual production is currently of 1.000.000 bottles of DOC wine and 500.000 of Port wine. Read less

Quite dark in the glass, and with the nose--sharp somewhat chemically--this one looks like a brute. On the palate, though, those thoughts diminish. It's quite easy going on the initial entry. Not terribly fruity and it flows easily over the tongue. Then on the sides and back of the tongue the tannin hits along with some heat. Suddenly, we're back to a brutish wine. I like it. We're have spicy sausage sandwiches for dinner, tonight, and this one is going to go just fine. US$17.99 at Total Wine

Very nice red blend from Portugal. Red and black cherry, medium acidity, fine grained tannin, a touch of earthiness all balanced with a good bit of oak. Pretty good QPR.

Very nice "typical" Douro blend...60% Touriga Nacional, 20% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz; dark purple, zingy acidity, moderate tanins, and very pleasant to drink by itself or with food that has substance...oak notes are restrained allowing the fruit to shine

Intensive Aromatik von reifer Frucht und Röstaromen offenbaren sich in der Nase. Das fein verarbeitete und nuancenreiche Bouquet lässt keinen Zweifel über die Herkunft offen. Dass das Douro-Tal nicht nur grandiose Portweine hervorzubringen vermag, beweist dieser Reserva. Es ist ein filigraner, tiefgründiger Qualitätswein mit Struktur, Stoff und Harmonie, die im lange anhaltenden Finish zur vollen Entfaltung gelangen.
