Abundant fruit matched with an easy and approachable style - a good example of well-priced Portuguese wine.

Aromas of ripe bramble fruit, plum and a touch of spice. Generous on the palate with fresh red cherry and blackberry leaf characters - supple, fine tannins and a touch of spice on the juicy finish.

One of Portugal's largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country's most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco's greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.

A blend of predominantly Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, from Alianca's 360 hectare Quinta d'Aguiar property in Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo in Beiras. 80 hectares are now planted with these varieties, in schist soils. Fermentation and ageing takes place in stainless steel.

Serve with full-flavoured meaty stews, bangers and mash or barbecued meats.
