Grape(s): Touriga-Nacional, Touriga-Franca, Tinta-Roriz, Tinta-Barroca and Tinto-Cão
Localization: Douro, Portugal
Tasting Notes: Intense aroma of ripe red fruits with hints of rockrose and spices. Balanced with a good presence of fruit and a lingering finish.
Notes: Lello red is reborn from the history of the Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges – a pioneering brand of Douro wines. It is a balanced, modern wine, which can be enjoyed all the time. It is a symbol of Douro and reflects the region one-of-a-kind characteristics for producing wines of incomparable quality. Part of the wine is aged in stainless stell vats and the remainder in French Oak casks for between 4 to 6 months.
Food Pairing: Excellent as an aperitif or to accompany poultry and meat dishes, smoked sausages, cheese and some fish.
The Domain: Founded in 1884 by the brothers António and Francisco, the Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges soon became one of the main national wine companies. Recognizing that excellence can only Portuguese wines assert themselves in the world, Borges has always bet on the quality of its production, today exported to more than fifty countries on five continents.
Conscious of the need to dominate the production process since the vineyard plantation, Borges is present in the main Portuguese demarcated regions with three reference farms: in the Vinhos Verdes, the Quinta de Simaens with 46 hectares; in the Douro, Quinta da Soalheira with 340 hectares and in Dão the Quinta de São Simão da Aguieira with 74 hectares. Borges recently increased direct production capacity in the Dão region by about 100 hectares.
