Crasto Superior Red 2016

Regular price €19,00
This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro).

The grapes used to make this wine come from our property Quinta da Cabreira where we have 114 hectares of recently planted vines.

Crasto Superior is fresh and balanced on the nose. Fresh on the palate, great body and ripe firm tannins. Very complex notes of dark berried fruits, gum cistus and cocoa lingering towards the elegant finish. Excellent length.

Grape Varieties
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Souzão

Ageing
In French oak barrels for about 12 months

Tasting Note
Deep purple in colour. On the nose the wine shows fresh wild berry fruit that are well integrated with light notes of spice. Balanced on the palate, evolving into a wine of great volume, with a compact structure made of thick-textured tannins. The finish is elegant, fresh and lingering.
