What's 25 Barricas? The 25 barrels of this wine. It is a grand wine that has dark tannins, firm structure and rich fruit all in the right places. Of course, it is young, so the firm, dry tannins need to soften out. It's the balance that winemaker Jorge Moreira commands that makes it so good. The result is a wine that will age impressively over many years. Drink this powerful wine from 2019.
