This is the entry-level red from this estate in the heart of the Dão region. Its red-berry fruits are bright, bursting from the glass, bringing a firmer tannic core and a mineral texture. The wine is a typical blend of the region with Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Jaen. The oak aging has given the wine a smooth ripe aftertaste. Drink from 2018.
