Originally from the Dão region, Portugal's oldest wine area, Touriga Nacional still produces some of its best wines in its home base. This powerful wine is a fine example of what Celso de Lemos set out to do when he set up the 62-acre estate. This wine has black fruits, dark tannins, a light perfumed character and considerable potential. Powered by its structure and acidity it is developing slowly and surely. Drink from 2017.
