This iconic Douro property can be traced all the way back to 1565! This is the most-awarded wine of the 1996 declared vintage from this historical estate that dates back to the 16th century. Dark purple in colour, with lots of pretty plum, floral and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with very racy tannins and a long, long, fruity finish. Only 3,000 cases produced for the world.

Putty/linseed on the nose and very sweet, round and rich. Flattering, lovely, smoky, exciting! Dense. Very, very good! Long, concentrated, explosive. (18.5/20 points)
