Touriga Nacional, Tinta Francisca, Touriga Franca, Sousão
Very concentrated ruby color. Good well balanced aromatic freshness with ripe black fruit as well as blackberry, plum and raisin. It features an elegant balance of spicy notes with wood. Dense tannins, well balanced acidity and the minerality reveal some good structure in the mouth, body and consistency, keeping an aromatic character in a long, lingering finish, portending great longevity.
