Modern wine, with bouquet full of coconut, chocolate and lots of red fruits. Concentrated with sweet and silky tanins. Not the most vibrating and personalized wine, but the 'sexy' side makes it pretty easy to drink. Good with a pasta alla bolognese.
The 'Tinta Francisca' grape variety is actually not very spread (it's the only varietal wine of Tinta Francisca I know) and it's a bit a pitty they didn't let the variety express itself, hiding it behind the oak and modern treatment....
