Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Quinta do Javali
Grapes: 30+ Varietals from old vines of at least 65 years of age
Aging: 20 months in new and used French Oak
Tasting Notes: Dark red color, with almost an opaque center. Nose dominated by fruit, essentially ripe black one. You can also unlock floral hints of crushed violet petals. There are also notes of undergrowth, with allusions to bark aromas, along with bitter chocolate. Long aging in high quality barrels don't mask the wine. On the palate, the structure has a huge dimension, supported by good tannins, which enhance the long persistence of evidence and considerable aging capacity.
