Terrugem in the Borba region was acquired by Aliança in 1991, and now has 147 acres of vines. Bringing together the winemaking talents of Francisco Atunes and Bordelais Pascal Chatonnet, this is the top wine from the estate. It is smooth, polished, packed with dry tannins, as well as intense blackberry jelly flavors. This is a fine, deep-flavored wine, great for sophisticated cooking or just some good pork. Imported by Tri-Vin Imports.
