The grapes for this wine are sourced from various parcels of vineyards in the Cima Corgo, the heart of the Demarcated Douro Region. Vinified in lagares, ageing is carried out in large old oak casks, for a period of 3 to 4 years. Following ageing the various wines are put together so as to obtain a more rich and complex final "blend."

Bright red in colour, exhibiting a very attractive aroma, with notes of ripe red fruit stand out (plum, cherry) along with a touch of dark chocolate and cocoa. Smooth on the palate, with tannins evident but very round and soft. All balanced with good acidity.
