Passadouro
Touriga Franca

2016
    • Tasting notes

      Slightly concentrated colour. The nose is very floral and elegant with aromas of spices, rock rose, black fruits and a very subtle wooden presence. On the palate, it is full and well-balanced, very silky, fresh and intense, with a long finish.
