Varietal: Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão
Region: Douro Valley
Tasting Note: Although aged the same as Ruby (3 years), it has a more developed aroma and taste. This is due to greater oxygenation (through ageing in wooden barrels as opposed to wine vats), which makes it a lighter, warmer and more feminine wine. Its original red colour gives way to amber tones, its flavour is enriched by a combination of nuts, dried fruits and the aromas of red fruits – cherries, plums, blackberries and raspberries – and a semi-oxidizing harmonious bouquet is formed.
