Quote – “Vines planted in a former apple orchard (pomar) give a structured, firm wine with tannins as well as dense black fruits. The dense texture comes from the ripe fruit, aged for 12 months in wood. This concentrated wine will age further. Drink from 2018” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
