Rola, Red Reserva Douro 2018
Yes (not certified)
The Rola, Red Reserva Douro 2018 is a 50 year-old field blend (mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz) with 30 percent spending nine to twelve months in new and used French oak barriques, resulting in a muscular wine with flavours of dried black fruit, figs and notes of chocolate, spice and presunto. The chuncky broad bottle and modern label reflect the wine perfectly.
After fermentation and malolactic conversion, 30 percent of the wine is carefully aged for nine to twelve months in new and used French oak barrels.
Ana Rola is born and raised in the Douro. Since an early age she knew she wanted to be a winemaker in the Douro Valley. Here she finds originality, unbeatable terroir and knowledge. Here, she feels, she can overcome the challenges of creating a wine that stands out from the crowd! In 2014 Ana decided to leave her post as head winemaker at a large prestigious Douro winery to go it alone. She explains: "After many years doing what I love for others, I think it got to a point that I thought ‘why not do it for myself?’." Ana Rola shared she wants "to make wines that really tell you where they came from, wine from specific vineyards with minimal intervention, wines that are true and honest."
