Cristiano Van Zeller, previous owner and director of Quinta do Noval, is launching a range of new ports under the De Zellaer label. Zellaer is the medieval spelling of the name Van Zeller.

Rufo was born during an after-dinner talk with some friends, while elaborating about how to better our agricultural practices to improve the environment and increase the Aleactoris Ruffa's population in Vale D. Maria (Aleactoris Ruffa being the scientific name for the red-legged partridge). We agreed that the word Rufo, meaning red in Latin, would be a good name for a Douro red wine. But Rufo in Portuguese also means the sound of a drum, so when designing the new label, the drum quickly became the choice for the symbol of the new Rufo do Vale D. Maria, our entry level wine, and the one that announces and sets the beginning, the rhythm for our range of Vale D. Maria wines.

With a medium concentration of sugars and good acidity levels, Rufo do Vale D. Maria 2010 is an elegant and very fresh wine, with strong aromatic and fruity flavors and a very good freshness in its finish. Great balance and acidity, intense and velvety, with finesse and elegance.

Blend: 60% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca
