Quinta da Manoella Red 2016

Manoella Tinto is a blend of 60% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz, and 5% Tinta Francisca from the Quinta da Manoella vineyard. The grapes are fermented for 8 days at low temperatures and then foot-trodden in open granite lagares. The wine is aged for 16 months in used French barriques.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful purple color with fresh notes of raspberry, blackberry and spices. On the palate, this wine shows round and velvety tannins, good concentration, and a long finish.
