This it’s a very good red wine Vinho Verde, produced in Portugal in the demarcated region of Vinho Verde in northwestern Portugal. In the palate it’s full-bodied and persistent. Full of mature berries, long and complex. Like the majority of red wine Vinho Verde it’s fresh and young.

With a violet red colour, it has a fantastic aroma at young red fruits such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
