Quinta do Couquinho 2016

Couquinho, the wine that literary means "a very faraway place", can be traced back to the Melo Trigo family, in the Upper Douro region of Portugal, for over two centuries. Many of the family's estates, including the renowned Quinta do Couquinho, are nestled in the Vilariça Valley, where local stories and legends intertwine with those of the family.

Quinta do Couquinho Colheita 2016

Cherry red colour with purple edges. I really appreciated the berry smell.Predominating aromas of red fruits.
You can take it with any meal.
I thought the Quinta do Couquinho Colheita would be perfect for a romantic evening.

Quinta do Couquinho Colheita 2013
Lively colour with soft wood notes as a result of the ageing in French oak barrels. The micro-oxigenation that results from this ageing process enhances the wine's elegance and finesse.
