Quinta de Cidro – Rufete Douro 2013 6x 75cl Bottles from TheDrinkShop
The Rufete grape reveals an ability to age and produces quite exotic reds. Very round, soft in tannins, medium-bodied but very elegant with aromas of red and blackberries.
The wine looks light when compared to classic Douros, but in fact, has a lot of personality and holds on very well on the finish.
Served at a lower temperature, unlike other reds, it emphasises the fruit character of Rufete and makes it very pleasant to drink.
