A very concentrated colour. Extremely complex on the nose, with fresh notes of wild berries and spices. The palate is rich and well-balanced. Firm but silky tannins. The finish is long and tasty. Its structure contributes to a great ageing potential.
Field Blend with the traditional Douro Varieties.
Harvest: 3rd week of September
All grapes were handpicked. They were trodden by foot in temperature controlled granite lagares over a period of 10 days.
During the next 18 months, the malolactic fermentation and ageing of the wine took place in French oak barrels.
