Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Quinta do Javali
Grapes: Touriga Nacional
Aging: 12 months in new French Oak
Tasting Notes: Deep red with violet reflexes. Very expressive nose, predominantly black ripe fruit notes, with some hints of floral aromas (violet). Highlight the toasty notes of the barrel that enhance the greedy appetite of wine, with greater emphasis on nuances of vanilla and coconut. The mouth press for the elegant structure, without being aggressive, guarantees a good persistence, in line with attractive notes of toasted oak barrels.
