Quinta Do Javali | Maria Luisa | Red 2011 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating 4.5
Intro: The Maria Luisa brand is the top tiered wine from Quinta do Javali, named after Antonio's wife and daughter. Made from the very best parcels within the vineyard. (600 bottles produced)
Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Quinta do Javali
Grapes: 30+ Varietals of old vines with at least 65 years of age
Aging: 48 months in new French Oak
Tasting Notes: The Core loaded in dark ruby colour and halo with slight brown nuances. Initial nose with spices (black pepper), grass and understory notes. Aromas of cigar and shale follow. After some time of aeration, notes of black plum and dark chocolate appear. As a result of a patient wait, the ripe black fruit appears in all its splendour. The immense structure supports the fruity flavors of black plum with “grandeur”. There are even “earthy” sensations, again with stunning freshness.
