You will like to know that…

Carlos Alonso Douro Wine was founded rather recently in 1985. This family-run company is focused on providing high-quality Douro Valley wines to the world. This traditional Portuguese winemaking region was the first region in the world to ever be regulated. From this land full of so much history and character comes new, modern wines from an ambitious winery whose eyes look to the past for guidance while it moves steadily towards the future.

Piano markets itself as harmony between love and wine. Piano Red 2017 is a delicious blend of four fine varieties of Douro red grapes: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, and Tinta Roriz. All of these grapevines were planted in the early 1990s, in the heart of the Douro Valley. After vinification, the nine months this wine spent ageing in French oak allowed it to mature into a ruby-red gem.

This rich, complex Douro wine could be left to age further in the bottle or you could just as easily drink it now. It will be excellent either way. Like a good instrument, it can marry with almost any style of food. Try Piano Red 2017 with fish, poultry, red meat, pasta, or salad. It will play along nicely and will finish by leaving the perfect note on your palate.

Carlos Alonso Douro Wine is a family business with an international vocation, focused on the production of quality wines, innovation and development of the region that is in its DNA: the Douro. Carlos Alonso Douro Wine was born in 1985 of the will and daring of its founder. It was his vision, character and personality that marked the winning course for a project. Openness to innovation and the ambition to do different - allied to respect for tradition and the values of ethics and responsibility - mark the genesis of an organization that has been able to preserve the vision of the founder and adapt it to the inevitable change of times.

4 /5

Of beautiful ruby color and dense violets, the nose is complex, with floral notes and ripe fruit. This wine in the mouth reveals good body and balance, with a structure of soft tannins.
