Described as a Sunday face wine we´re leaving the translation of the notes published below.
“Cut out from the grape varieties Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Alfrocheiro. It has a purplish intense look and an exotic flavour recalling fresh and stewed strawberries followed by floral touches. It has mature palate and is medium-bodied, but it is also delicate, with sweet and juicy tannins that guarantee nice texture without being cloying. The floral notes appear, bringing finesse and personality. Its flavour persists and is very pleasing. A wine that has a Sunday face with the family. Roasts and pasta can go quite well with it. 13% Alcohol. “
