Tasting Notes

A lively red blend made from Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Jaen (Mencía) which makes for a great combination of tannins and rusticity and a dose of finesse. The wine was aged for a half year in French oak barrels. Winemaker Nuno Cancela de Abreu comes from a family of grape growers starting 130 years ago. His respect of terroir is visibile.
