Vinification and ageing
Fermentation occurred in traditional granite “lagares” where the grapes where foot trodden, followed by ageing 18 months in French oak barrels. Before bottling the wine undergoes a slight filtration, ensuring a superb balance of fruit and oak.
Made from Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Sousão, grown on the south bank of the Douro River, in Resende.
Aroma and taste
Very concentrated, with intense mature red fruit aromas. Great structure, full bodied, matured round tannins, with an excellent acidity, long and persistent finish.
