Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Amarela
The color is ruby and the aroma is intense and complex to black plum and blackberry, followed by cacao. In the mouth the wine is voluptuous and with a good acidity. Tannins are well present but very smooth, resulting in a perfect balance and long-lasting after taste.
