Get to know: Lavradores de Feitoria, Vinha de Sobreiro
From a vineyard 400 meters above sea level, in Celeirós, in the Pinhão Valley, this red wine highlights the delicacy and beauty of Touriga Franca, the variety that gives a floral and fruity side, balanced with the structure of Tinto Cão and the rusticity of Tinta Roriz. Elegant and complex, it is fine, elegant, floral and fruity. Very well integrated oak ageing contributes to its complexity. Balanced and full of aromatic ripe red fruits. It has a lively but balanced acidity, soft tannins and a very long and pleasant finish.
