This is Esporão's flagship estate wine blend, a rich summation of the warm, ripe fruit that's produced on this Alentejo estate. With big, powerful black fruit and a dense texture, this has a rounded, solid and chunky feel, and the tannins are cushioned by the ripeness. Age this for at least four years.
