Today we look at the DOC Douro wines, as a consistency of brand, quality and huge international reputation. It is probably even one of the regions that best defends the colors of our flag out of doors. However, if we look at the early 90s, there were few existing producers and few have claimed as producers of excellence. Domingos Alves de Sousa belongs to the clan of the Douro Valley pioneers. Although it has always sold grapes to the big houses of Port, decided in 1992 to explore the vineyards of Quinta da Gaivosa in a cool area of the Douro, in the region of Santa Marta de Penaguião. In his long journey, always had his right arm, Anselmo Mendes and in recent years also with his son, Tiago Alves de Sousa. Discreet, humble and sober, the Alves de Sousa produce monumental wine, with excellent ratings by national and international magazines, and has even been regarded as the producer of the Year in 1999.
The Personal Reserve, are the fruit of his restlessness and personality. Released only in years of excellence and with a long and serene in the bottle, this 2007 is a novelty on the market! Yes, a 2007! A timeless wine, reflecting the best of the terroir of Quinta da Gaivosa has to display. Concentration, depth, minerality, imposing tannins but all supported by a good dose of freshness, acidity and finesse. This remarkable balance can only be achieved with great wines, but mostly only with a long stage bottle.
