Bruno Prats (October 2019): Intense color that reflects great concentration. The nose shows the excellent integration of the barrel, as well as the floral notes of Touriga Nacional and the more balsamic notes of Touriga Franca. It has a touch of chocolate at the end. In the mouth it has a rich and lasting structure. The tannins are round and polished, providing elegance, minerality and freshness. The aromatic expression lingers with a long aftertaste. A wine with great aging potential that balances great concentration with elegance and finesse.
Bruno Prats, Charles Symington and Pedro Correia.
