Wonderful, complex nose with oak, licorice and sweet red fruits. Taste is dry with medium body and good acid and velvety tannins. Has flavours of ripe red fruit, as well as some tobacco. Very complex with long aftertaste. A bit like a modern Nebbiolo, with a touch of burgundy, great stuff! Winemaker's Notes Wine from the Baga grape grown on chalky-clay soil in a place called Panasqueira, in a hillside turned to south, where at the end of August was made a harvest of precision of 50% to the production of the Sparkling Baga. The second harvest (to this wine) was made at the end of September, what gave the wine an unusual concentration when compared with other wines from the same grape. To be dished up with duck and red meats. To keep for more than fifteen years.
