With a dark garnet color and red rim, this is our fruity red blend. Cherries, plums, spices and some balsamic notes from the oak ageing pop up from the glass. In the mouth, the wine announces itself as a round, well-structured red wine, giving way to a crisp, fresh red. The wine lingers on the palate, long enough to call for another sip.
A blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional grape varieties from 5 years old to 35 years old vineyards, situated in Loureiro (Baixo Corgo) and in our own vineyards located in the Rio Sabor Valley (Douro Superior).

Ruth says ” Red berry fruit, spice and balsamic with a chocolate finish.”
