Quote – “Revista de Vinhos”, Jan 2010, Selecção do Mês: “Está imponente no aroma, com grande finura e elegância de fruto, nuances florais discretas e muito bem integradas. Boca sedosa, lembrando bombom de cereja, cacau amargo, especiarias com grande intensidade e requinte. Muito, muito bom” (REVISTA DE VINHOS, 2010)

Quote – “This is firm and solid wine is a blend dominated by tannic Touriga Nacional. Ripe berry fruits on the palate offer juicy acidity for balance, and a perfumed hue gives character and nuance. This impressive wine needs to age, so wait until 2016” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
