From a vineyard of 100-year-old vines discovered during building works in the city of Almeirim, this beautiful wine is ripe with tropical mango and pineapple fruits and an intense rich character. The concentration is balanced with pear and apple acidity, giving a fine wine that is now ready to drink.
