Founded in 1927 in the town of Sangalhos, 88km to the south of Porto, Alianca has been part of the Bacalhoa wine group since 2007. With 600ha spread across estates in five regions from the Douro all the way down to Alentejo, Alianca is one of Portugal’s largest quality producers. Its Quinta dos Quatro Lentos estate is located in the Douro Superior and this unoaked wine is a blend of 40% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Tinta Barroca. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, with maceration on the skins lasting for a total of 12 days.

Sarah Ahmed, Decanter - Seductive, sweet red fruit augmented by touches of plum and graphite; there’s a welcome softness here, yet with some underlying tannin poking through. 95/100

Beatriz Machado, Decanter - Super-spicy yet with a rounded mouthfeel, delivering notes of mint, cherry and bergamot. 95/100

Nick Oakley, Decanter -Shows a blue fruited charm with svelte, creamy tannins mobilising to a lively finish; a real nice balance has been achieved here. 95/100
