This is a major, impressive wine. Its power and tannins are matched by its style, rich dark fruit flavors and its dense sense of structure. The potential of this wine, with its poise between juicy acidity and structure is enormous. A mineral texture gives the wine its essential connection with the terroir of the Douro Superior. The wine comes from one of the top Douro estates, the last to be created by Dona Antonia Ferreira and one that is still in the hands of her descendants.
