"This popular range of wines has a serious side in the reserva wines. This structured and full-bodied blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz is just approaching black fruit and tannin structured maturity. There is a fine dusty quality in the wine that has a ripe, perfumed aftertaste. Drink now."

Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz. Tasting Notes: Intense ruby color with brownish nuances. In the aroma, there are balsamic notes, floral fragrances and notes of wild, well-ripe red fruits. It has round tannins, firm and full of fruit, finishing with elegance and persistence.
