Touriga Nacional is as much, maybe more, at home in the Dão as in the Douro. That's shown by this ripe and powerful wine that is still so young. The dark structure of tannins and wood flavors has a great mineral texture along with the potential for delicious blackberry fruits. It needs several years aging, wait until 2018.
