Wine Description

Casa Ferreirinha Vinha Grande Red 2012 is ruby red withpurple tinges. The aroma is intense, predominantly redcurrantand plum, along with spice, resin and cedar, all very wellintegrated with subtle oak. It is a well-balanced wine with firm,well-textured tannins and bright, attractive acidity. Its finish isvery long and harmonious.

With time, it may throw a sediment and need decanting. Younger wines should be opened a little while before serving to allow them to breathe, develop and show at their best.

Blend: 35% Touriga Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz, 25% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Barroca
