Description

One of Portugal's largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country's most impressive premium reds (with help from Michel Rolland and Pascal Chatonnet) from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco's greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.



Deep, dark and dense in colour. This rich, ripe and intense wine has powerful black smoky fruit, off-set with spicy vanilla characters. Black cherry, bitter mocha and smooth, ripe tannins combine to produce a harmonious, well integrated and complex wine.



Grape variety: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional
