Antonia Ferreira was the a major figure in the Douro, and creator of many of the regions' greatest vineyards. This wine, celebrating her legacy, comes from old vines at Quinta do Seixo. It's a dense, smoothly rich wine, that's very concentrated. Limpid black fruits are sustained by firmer acidity, new wood flavors and a dark, firm aftertaste. Keep for seven years and more.
