Another banger from Rita Marques who is the driving force behind this -in my opinion- leading eastern Douro estate in Portugal. This wine is a fresh, dark red made from touriga franca 40%, and touriga nacional and tinta roriz, each 30%. Harvested by hand, destemmed, spontaneously fermented and matured in steel.
Dark blueish red. Aroma of red and dark berries, liquorice and pepper. Fresh and charming, quite easy, but serious enough with some dryness from the skins, and just enough acidity.
