This vineyard in the Douro Superior is used as part of the blend for the legendary Barca Velha. In other years, it shows its qualities as a single-vineyard wine. This wine is very fine, rich with black fruits and strongly tannic, it is packed with fruitiness, layers of wood aging and crisp black-currant acidity at the end. Drink the wine from 2023.
