They are among the secret heroes of the international wine world: winegrowers such as the quality-oriented Carlos Figueiredo, who respects his native Dão and the local terroir, but at the same time also produces wines at world level. In his wines, wine lovers will find the individuality that is often lost in times of increasing globalization of wine taste: authentic, traditionally prepared wines with a radiant regional character, made from indigenous grape varieties in a small edition. It is therefore no surprise that Señor Figueiredo planted the touriga nacional - the king of Portuguese grapes - and produces characteristic, quintessentially Portuguese terroir wines such as the Quinta da Falorca Touriga Nacional Dão 2011. It is not without reason that the wine has 95 Parker points to its name!

The Touriga Nacional Quinta Da Falorca is a mix of Touriga grapes from three plots of 40 years old and 1 vineyard slightly younger. Used with 31 clones in total!! The grapes have matured for 18 months in both 1-year used and new French oak. The combination of power, finesse and elegance makes this a very seductive wine. The wine needs time and can improve even further over the years and we therefore recommend not opening the first bottle until 2022, but they can also remain in the cellar until 2035+ (but why would you do that). The wine can best be compared to a beautiful sturdy red top Burgundy, but then it is only a fraction of the price. 94/100 Parker and only around 7,000 bottles were made

The wine has an impressive cherry red color with a violet edge. The exceptionally lively bouquet smells of black cherries, blackberries, blueberries and pampers the nose with floral aromas, notes of herbs, spices and fragrant barrel flavors such as cocoa, toast and espresso. On the palate an impressive fusion of power and finesse, with ripe but firm tannins, excellent concentrated acidity, well-balanced fruitiness and noticeable but perfectly integrated wood aromas. The final shows strength, length and enormous potential. That is, without any ifs or buts, the level of a grand cru.

This wine goes well with rustic, Mediterranean stews, refined lamb dishes and grilled vegetables such as eggplant and zucchini.
