Quinta do Crasto - Superior Douro D.O.C. Red 2014
Another great wine from the Douro region.
Quinto do Crasto – Superior Douro D.O.C. Red 2014 (88 tsomw points)
Matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. Blend of 50% Touriga Nacional, 20% Tinta Roriz, 25% Touriga Franca and 5% Sousao.
In the glas a deep purple, violet color.
On the nose aromas of redberries, chocolate, spices and flowers.
On the palate solid, velvety structure with elegant tannins, red fruit, subtle oakiness and nice acidity.
This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro).
The grapes used to make this wine come from our property Quinta da Cabreira where we have 114 hectares of recently planted vines.
Crasto Superior is fresh and balanced on the nose. Fresh on the palate, great body and ripe firm tannins. Very complex notes of dark berried fruits, gum cistus and cocoa lingering towards the elegant finish. Excellent length.
