Tasting Notes
Upon visual examination the sample is limpid, intense ruby red color with very light garnet textures, of good consistency.
At the sip there are floral notes reminiscent of moderately withered red wildflowers, followed by hints of ripe dark berry fruits such as cherry durone, blueberry and currant. Hints of spices such as ground pepper grains and closing with balsamic notes of eucalyptus.
The sip is fresh, supported by a discreet, non-aggressive tannic texture. Good persistence with an aromatic taste and an aftertaste of spicy spices.
It is recommended in combination with a larded veal fillet.
A wine to start discovering a wine region of Portugal, the Douro, with a wine produced with a blend of 5 grape varieties. The value for money for the consumer is interesting.
