A wine with lots of color, opaque, with great aromatic intensity dominated by blackberries, blackberry jelly, rosemary and floral notes of Touriga Nacional all in a fruit of very good quality. The taste is pleasantly strong with a juicy acidity and tannins well framed. An intense red wine, powerful and elegant at the same time.
