Tinta Roriz,Touriga Franca,Touriga Nacional
Purple-black colour very deep, with narrow purple halo. Nose extraordinarily powerful and intoxicating, with an almost overwhelming abundance of fruit greedy where blueberry, cassis and cherry combine with delicate aromatic notes of cistus flower. Mouth large and full, packed with dense tannins and rich, full of delicious fruity flavors.

This vintage can be enjoyed by itself but it goes equally well with full cheeses and chocolate or red fruit deserts. A strong cigar can also be the ideal accompainment.
