The wine shows an impressive and lush aromatic character in which notes of red and black berries combined with suggestions of herbal and spice integrate in perfect harmony with the subtle nuances of vanilla provided from its ageing in oak. On the palate, shows excellent structure and power, yet at the same time elegant with a profoundness and concentration typical of the old vines. Its tannins are firm and round, and its flavours highlighted by a balanced acidity resulting in a long, and lingering finish. Carvalhas Vinhas Velhas shows all the potential for many years of ageing in bottle, although showing great satisfaction to those who prefer to drink it young. As a result of this preference, we have found Carvalhas to be highly gastronomical, showing increadible versitality when it comes to matching with food.
