The Rótulo was borne from their commitment to producing traditional wines whose freshness and lightness make them ideal food partners for any occasion. Since 2012 they have been procuring vineyard blocks – including some very old sites – which express the unique character of the region. Its mountainous microclimate and granitic soils have been the birthplace of great wines for a very long time. The wine boasts a beautiful ruby hue of medium intensity. The similarity between this Rótulo and its previous vintages lies in the fine, fruity aromas with notes of black fruit, hints of spice (especially black pepper) as well as floral and balsamic nuances. This medium bodied wine has a mineral and distinctly elegant profile where fruits of the forest and spicy notes take centre stage, and acidity and fruitiness balance each other out perfectly. The ageing period on cement tanks lends the wine a refreshing, elegant and lasting finish. Traditional Portuguese cuisine such as stewed veal, duck rice, oven-baked cod and traditional Portuguese cured sausages are perfect matches. Grape Varieties - Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Alfrocheiro.
