This quinta was created by the legendary Dona Antonia Ferreira in the 19th century and it is still owned by her descendants. While currently quite youthful, there is greatness in this wine. Its density of minerality, black fruits and rich tannins create a wine with huge aging potential. It's rich while always elegant, balanced and ready for a long life. Drink from 2025.
