$11.49

The grapes from Vila Nova Douro Red wine are from the oldest wine region in the world.  This blend is comprised of 40% Touriga Nacional and 30% each of Tinta Roriz and Toiuriga Granca grapes.  Hand harvested from vines 20-30 years of age, the best grapes of each of the varietals chosen were fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless-steel tanks.  Fifty percent of the finished wine was then aged for six months in used French oak barrels.  The result is a fresh well-balanced  red wine, deep and intense ruby in color, that displays fruity aromas and flavors with silky tannins that lead to a long and fruit-filled finish.  13.5% ABV QUI
