This wine is produced from traditional red wine varieties – Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela, and has a highly complex and voluptuous aroma. The toast from the new French and American oak barrels where the wine ages for 15 months combines nicely with the fine and mature fruit. It has a satiny body, a rich texture and a long finish.
Francisco Montenegro: "An attractive bright, purple-red colour shows this wine's vigour and promise. A good initial impact on the nose is held up by abundant, ripe, plummy fruit. These aromas combine well with hints of dry grass and the toasted notes from wine's stay in oak barrels. The big, rich, yet fresh palate is filled with red fruits and fine, full tannins. The long, indulgent finish brings out an extra layer of spiciness."
