The low-yield old vines of the quinta have produced a dense wine with firm tannins. Young and with good potential, the wine is a blend of four Douro grapes, dominated by Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. Unoaked, it is rich and firm, all ripe blackberry fruits with a cut of acidity. Drink from 2018.
