Food Pairings for Quinta Do Vallado Red Blend Douro
External Reviews for Quinta Do Vallado Red Blend Douro
This blend is dark red, with crimson highlights and an intense, mature red fruit nose, with hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese herb). The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied elegance, with mature, round tannins, leading to a long, persistent finish. - Winery
In the heart of the Douro region, a few miles from the historical centre of Régua, Quinta do Vallado spreads along both banks of the Corgo River, right where it meets the Douro. With references dating back to 1716, the Quinta belonged to the legendary D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira and has remained in the family ever since. It is now in its sixth generation. Douro red has wonderfully concentrated aromas, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and “esteva” (a local Portuguese resinous bush). With a great structure, full bodied, matured round tannins, and a long persistent finish, this is a red to try. Pair with traditional portuguese cuisine and make a real night of it!
