This is a serious wine from Aveleda's estate in Bairrada. With its bold, tarry tannins and solid structure, it's a wine that combines longevity and impressive fruit. Mineral, structured and concentrated with big black-fruit flavors and a dry, solid core, it's destined for long aging. Drink from 2019.
