The Follies range of wines is named after monuments and shrines in the region of the Quinta da Aguieira. This wine, a rich blend of 70% Touriga Nacional with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, concentrated and ripe with black currant and berry fruits. Firmly tannic, it will benefit from a few more months aging, so drink from late 2018.
