Quinta do Vallado Superior Douro Red 2018


A surprising wine of vivid color with intense aromas. Exuberant and mysterious, combining the typical floral aromas of Touriga Nacional with hints of exotic fruits. Intense and silky, with great quality tannings. It delivers a fresh and citric aftertaste, brought on by the presence of wild fruits.
