Aged for nine months in barrel, the wine is rich and smooth. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca make a classic Douro blend allowing for black fruits and juicy acidity, with a firm core of mineral tannins. The wood shows only in the extra richness and the smooth, spicy final character of the wine.
Excellent with red meat grilled or in sauce, game and strong cheeses.
Color: Intense garnet with violet hues.
Aroma: Intense in red fruits jam, quite ripe wild fruits and vanilla nuances, toasts and cocoa hints.
Flavor: Fruity, smooth, nice volume in the mouth, well-balanced with good persistence that comes from its silky and nobles tannins, that confers distinction and longevity.
Vinification in traditional wine-press. Total destemming, long skin maceration and alcoholic fermentation at 82 F.
