The Dão wine region is located in the center-north Portugal and is influenced by the Duero river and Sierra de la Estrela, of steep hills. The result of this influence are red wines with good graduation and quite tannic due to the duration of the macerations. The climate far from being Atlantic receives hot summers and humid winters, a mild continental climate resumly.

High opacity seal of the Touriga Nacional grape variety and a ruby colour in disc. Very fruity nose aromas as well as floral touchs in second place. The barel hints are melted. Very alcoholic entrance eclipsying acidity and almost its end, long and warm (13% vol.). He came somewhat aggressive in my opinion. It is also assumed that it has been 6 months in the barrel to tame the Tempranillo and TN tannins.

This reference leaves from Quinta de Cabriz winery, located in landscapes that I had the opportunity to meet this summer on my visit to Portugal-north. Well, this coupage is very typical of the Dão region too: Alfrocheiro (star grape of the D.O.C), Tinta-Roriz (Tempranillo) and Touriga Nacional.
