you can’t try a 21 year old red at this price anywhere else? This rich and complex wine emphasises the smoky notes and dark fruits that lead you in it as soon as you open the bottle. The moderate acidity and well inegrated tannins shows a freshness that belies its age with real elegance.

An interesting wine to compare with our later vintage Poço do Lobo as the grapes are from the same blocks and made in the same style but a long time apart.

Style: Deep granite red
