Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca
Deep with violet hues colour. Intense and exuberant, showing mature dark berry fruits, blackberries and blackcurrants, with balsamic and soft spicy barrel notes. Great concentration, with mature tannins fused into a full bodied palate which has balancing acidity and potential for extended bottle maturation. Long and persistente finish with mature fruit aromatics.
