Firm and tannic, this is a dense wine that is still young. It has concentrated tannins that dominate the potential of the juicy fruit. There is some of the typical minerality of a Dão wine that gives a tight texture. All these elements will soften soon to produce a fine, ripe wine. Drink from 2017.
