Vinification and ageing
Fermentation occurred in traditional granite “lagares” where the grapes where foot trodden, followed by ageing in American 10 months in oak barrels. Before bottling the wine undergoes a slight filtration, ensuring a superb balance of fruit and oak.
Made from Tinta Roriz grown on the south bank of the Douro River, in Resende.
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.
