The blend is based about Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca, although the percentages employed vary each vintage. After a warm fermentation, about 20% of the wine is aged for about six months in third and fourth use French oak barrels. Shows red-fruit aromas, well integrated tannins and a juicy finish.
