A big, hearty, robust and juicy red wine that layers typical dry Portuguese tannins with dark red fruits, herbs and acidity. This blend of Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz is from one of the increasing number of enterprising producers to emerge in the Dão region of central Portugal. Touches of wood add complexity to a big-hearted wine.
