The grapes used to make this wine are varieties picked up in vineyards situated in some of the best terroirs of the Dão region. This producer has made a deep ruby coloured wine with intense aromas of ripe red berries and some hints of oak and a soft well rounded taste. A fruity wine with a semi rustic character that is very well priced. A good introduction to this famous Portuguese wine region.

Style: Silky, fruity red.

Serving Temperature: 15 - 16C

Suggestions: This wine can be enjoyed by itself, with veal fillet in cream sauce or duck breast with fruity sauces.
