Tasting Note

A beautiful red of deep garnet colour, showing good aromatic complexity with notes of violet flowers, dark plums, ripe cherry, red berries and spices, offering this wine a very special character. On the palate, its shows great balance, with flavours matching its nose profile combined with delicate hints of bergamot. It is round, elegant, yet its tannins quite vibrant and juicy, finishing quite flavourful and lingering


Since its foudation on the 10th september 1756 by Royal Charter of D. José I, King of Portugal, under the auspices of his Prime Minister, Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, Marquis of Pombal, the importance of this chartered Company was reflected by the valuable services to the community, being the most relevant, the demarcation of the Douro region – the oldest wine appellation in the world.
