The top wine from Sogrape's Dão flagship quinta, this is a selection of the best parcels. It's a powerful, serious wine, showing great regional characters of dark, mineral tannins and rich black fruits. There's a fine line of juicy acidity that cuts through the firm structure. Age this major wine for at least six years.
