Quote – “A blend of the best grapes from the vintage, this is a powerful, oak-aged wine. Concentrated, rich and still showing signs of vanilla from the wood, it slowly reveals its great black fruits and acidity. With firm tannins at the end, the wine will need more time. Drink from 2019” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
