Quinta da Devesa carries a secular history. In 1844, the well-known Baron Forrester, included this property in what was the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region. But the most important history of this property began last century, in 1941, when the Fortunato family acquired the Quinta, thus beginning a new phase of greater investment in wine production, with a special focus on Port Wines. Later there are also references to DOC Douro wines, which has strengthened its presence in the national and international wine market. Quinta da Devesa remains today an independent family company, oriented to the future, with presence in several international markets. The investment made in recent years has brought greater recognition by wine lovers and specialized critics. The result of all this is also visible through the huge palate of national and international awards achieved to date.

Tasting notes

The nose is aromatic, concentrated and powerful. Reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and small licorice notes associated with strawberry notes, small berries and flower notes, olive, spicy minerality, mocha, spices, Ceylon tea and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well balanced and juicy, tension, a good acidity and some minerality. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of wild blackberry, wild cassis and small notes of strawberry and black cherry, associated with notes of flowers, olive, fresh blueberry and tonka bean, as well as very discreet toasted touches and an imperceptible touch of Sichuan pepper. The tannins are firm and a little dry. Good persistence with tonka bean notes and with a very discreet touch of caramelisation.Recommended serving temperature: 16° — 18°C
