Great choise, good price, easy to order and excellent service. I bought a box of bottles less than a week ago and today they have arrived in Italy. Very good!

Couldn't wait to receive my order! Took a bit longer to dispatch the order than I was expecting though.

18,5 pts Revista de Vinhos - Deep ruby colour. Great aromatic complexity and freshness, with quite unique (but typical from the Abandonado vineyard) balsamic and tar flavours, liquorice and black berries. Pure refinement, with delicacy, minerality and an extraordinary purity of fruit. It feels the schist, the surrounding forest, the freshness of the altitude, in a pure expression of the vineyard’s nature. An exercise of pure elegance and class of one of the most iconic vineyards of the Douro and Portugal.
