Crasto Superior 2015

Crasto Superior is Wien red fresh and balanced on the nose. Fresh on the palate, great body and ripe tannins firm. Very complex notes of dark berried fruits, cistus gum and cocoa towards the lingering elegant finish. Excellent length.

4/5

The grapes from our Quinta da Cabreira, in the Upper Douro, were transported in small plastic boxes and subjected to rigorous screening to the winery entrance. After a total de-stemming and crushing slightly, the wort was transferred to fermentation tanks stainless steel with controlled temperature. Color: Violet loaded. Nose: Excellent design and aromatic intensity, which features fresh notes of wild berries, in line with elegant violet aromas, and soft notes of cocoa. Mouth balanced Top evolving into a wine with excellent volume, solid structure comprises engaging and silky tannins. All in perfect harmony with fresh retro nasal aromas of berries. Ends harmonious and with great persistence.
