Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz
It has a deep ruby hue. It has an intense and complex bouquet with a prevalence of ripe red fruits (blackcurrant and strawberry), black fruits (plum) and floral notes of rock-rose. Spicy aromas (pepper and curry) are also present, due to the oak maturation. Excellent quality oak notes are very well integrated. The palate has a fine body, fine-quality tannins, a well-integrated acidity, a strong presence of red fruits and warm spicy notes. It has a long and complex finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
With the passing of time a deposit may develop. The bottle should be kept horizontally, in a dry and cool place. So as to reach its full potential, this wine should be opened 1-2 hours prior to serving. Serve between 16ºC-18ºC.
Ideally accompanies red meat, big game and intense cheeses. Rich and tasty, it always goes very well with rump-steak and asparagus.
