This wineis produced by the varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz.
It presents an intense deep color. Aroma of great complexity and elegance, result of its evolution in bottle. Dominated by ripe black fruits, balsamic aromas, such as the stew, and notes of spices, from their stage in barrel. Firm and concentrated palate, with a balanced acidity, has ripe tannins well wrapped in its body and volume. It presents a long and persistent ending, where its balance and elegance stand out.
