Aroma and taste
Very concentrated, with balsamic oak notes and mature red fruit and violet aromas. Sweet, round, and matured and silky tannins, very balanced, with a long fresh finish.


Vinification and ageing
Fermentation occurred in traditional granite “lagares” where the grapes where foot trodden, followed by ageing in French oak barrels. Before bottling the wine undergoes a slight filtration, ensuring a superb balance of fruit and oak.

Grape Varieties
Made from Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Sousão, grown on the south bank of the Douro River, in Resende.
