Transport yourself to the lush Douro Valley, the world’s oldest demarcated wine region, with this elegant, vegan-friendly Reserva. Internationally renowned, Douro wines are celebrated for their intense aromas of fruit and spice, well-balanced acidity, earthy tannins and their rich Port-like qualities. Gloria’s 2016 Douro Reserva is a fine example of a classic Douro red. The 2016 Gloria Douro Reserva combines rich aromas of red berries, spices and cassis with round tannins to create a bold, powerful wine that is still infinitely sippable.
This wine comprises three classic Douro crus: 40% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Touriga Nacional. It has a seductive, inky color typical of high-quality Douro Reservas, due to the thickening of the grape skins during the intense summer heat in the region. This distinguished red is aged in oak barrels for 12 months. Enjoy Gloria’s 2016 Douro Reserva at dinner parties, intimate suppers or sitting on the porch on a warm Fall evening. Let it breathe for 30 minutes before serving for maximum smoothness and to let those intense fruity flavors really develop. Pair with Portuguese-inspired dishes for a true Douro Vinho experience.
