One of a range of wines from different regions, but all called Callabriga. This wine comes from Sogrape's Quinta da Leda in the Douro. It is a big, burly wine, packed with solid, dense and ripe fruit. Black plums and figs and a sweet core of dark tannins emerge from a structure that is still young. Age for 3–4 years.
