There is power inside this bottle. Tinta Roriz, or Tempranillo, showing both its tannic strength when young and also its potential for elegant aging. So this impressive wine is smooth, ripe, full of black fruits with a layer of caramel wood aging and a firm core. Age this for several years and drink from 2017.
