Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão
It has an intense tawny colour with brick-like tones. Its elegant and complex bouquet is characterised by flavours of ripe fruit, marmalade and nuts, with notes of vanilla, raisins and jelly. In the mouth, the balance between the richness of the grapes´ natural sugars and its tannins provide the wine with a fine structure and a delicate yet complex finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and humidity, at a constant temperature of 16ºC-18ºC. It is ready for drinking and does not require decanting. Once open, it should be consumed within 2-3 months. Serve between 12ºC-16ºC.
Delicious on its own and goes very well with several salty starters (quiche, foie-gras, creamy sea-food and vegetables), rich desserts (from the classic crème brûlée to a simple fresh peach) and a great variety of cheeses (including cured and blue cheese).
