Real Companhia Velha Series Cornifesto 2018 75cl


Tasting Note

A really interesting wine that unviels a strong and differentiating character. On the nose, shows greenish nuances that combine with fine ripe fruit notes and suggestions of spice, offering complexity. On the palate it is fresh and, yet elegant, with a sense of a balsamic texture, revealing the essence of the Cornifesto through a medium bodied structure and lively acidity. 1096 bottles made.


Since its foudation on the 10th september 1756 by Royal Charter of D.
