This cracking wine is from old vines (+70 years old), planted with a mix of native varieties (more than 20) with the main varieties being Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Rufete.

The nose of this wine, with a black core and a garnet rim, smells of red and black forest berries, savoury spice, and demi-glace. There is impressive fruit concentration here that allows the wine to linger on the palate. The tannins are soft and well integrated thanks to 40 months ageing in barrel. The medium-plus acidity is well integrated into the background.

An elegant and unique wine, faithful to its origins, to enjoy with intense gastronomy.

Style: Spicy warm hearted red.

Serving Temperature: 16-18C

Suggestions: Decant this wine an hour before consumption.
