Fruity aroma with very elegant and discreet minerality. Berries and spices, fresh, with a fruity lasting finish. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz grape varieties, from old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River’s hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres above sea level.
Enjoy with lamb dishes, appetizers, cheeses, pastas and Mediterranean cuisine.
