Reviews of Quinta do Crasto Superior 2015
Shows an intense ruby red colour red. Raspberry flavour. I kept feeling the taste for a long time.
I do not know whether this 2014 or the previous vintage is the best I've tasted.
Quinta do Crasto Superior reveals a fantastic tinge. Powerful scent of berries. Raspberry and strawberry on the palate.
