Named after the tower that dominates the buildings of Esporão, this wine is the pinnacle of achievement from the estate. It is a beautiful, silky textured wine that has dark tannins, a dense structure and intense black fruits. The sum is much more than the parts: a very fine, long-lived wine. Drink from 2019.
