Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão
Hugely dense wine, with immense ripe black fruit and dusty tannins. The wine is balanced, rich and structured at the same time. Powered by a dark core, the wine has weight, intensity and a solid long-term future.
Store and Serve Advices:
Ports are wines that develop very well in the bottle and should therefore be cellared in a dry and cool place where the bottles should be kept laid down. Serve at a temperature of 17 to 18ºC.
Perfect to drink with cow-cheeses or soft portuguese sheep-cheeses, ice-cream and as a digestive.
