Typical La Rosa structure and complexity, but fresher and brighter
douROSA wines are blended to be easy and approachable wines for immediate drinking. Medium bodied with generous, ripe red fruits and a touch of herbaceousness, that is balanced by smooth tannins that give this wine a certain elegance
Still largely unexplored, the terroir in the Douro offers incredible opportunity. None more so than La Rosa’s, whose vines rise dramatically out of the river with the imposing Vale do Inferno vineyard, and climb steadily upwards to top out at 5oom with Lamelas, whose magnificent views overlook the very heart of the region. The estate’s grapes are category A – the very best the Douro has to offer. Schist soil along with the extremely varied topography enable rich, full bodied wines to have remarkable acidity, minerality, and freshness. And it is this for which La Rosa has become renown; elegant wines that express terroir in bottle without too much extraction, tannin, oak.
