With a deep ruby colour and concentrated aroma, it suggests red fruit jam notes gently involved in wood during the ageing period. The mouth matches the nose. It is full, with ripe and silky tannins combined in a structure full of red fruit, currant and raspberry, coupled with slight balsamic and toast notes.
The structure of this wine requires an accompaniment of red meats, cheeses or a well seasoned gastronomy such as an octopus à lagareiro or a grain stew with mint.
