The vineyard is located in a region of Mediterranean climate, with Red chalky soils and granitic soils.
This wine is a cuvee of four varietals: Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermented in steel vats with temperature control, 12 months long maceration in new French oak barrels.
Deep Garnet wine color, complex fruitiness of very ripe blackberries and plum in great harmony, hints of dark chocolate and vanilla, an excellent acidity appears in the mouth perfectly involved with the jammy blackberries, plum and the toast announced by the aroma and persistently aftertaste.
The wine can well stored over a long time in the cellar.
