Tasting Notes: It is young and lively, with a beautiful deep garnet colour and a fantastic aromatic complexity of black and red berries with hints of oak from its 18 months ageing in oak. Very balanced and fruitful, with ripe red berry flavours, typical of Quinta dos Aciprestes. Its structure is overwhelming, revealing harmony on the palate yet simultaneously intense, powerful and elegant, resulting in a majestic, everlasting finish.
