About

91

From vertical vineyards that run straight up the hillside, an innovation in the mountainous Douro, this ripe blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca is rich in tannins as well as black fruits. It has a firm texture that boasts a black plum flavor, bright acidity and a hint of wood aging. Drink from 2019
