Product Description: Tinta Negra, this variety is dominant in Madeira, represents between 80 and 85% of wine production in Madeira. Grown in the south of the island between Funchal and Câmara de Lobos, and in the north at São Vicente. This Frasqueira, rich, is a one-year harvest. This wine was aged in barrels in the traditionally method called “Canteiro”. During the ageing process the wine is regularly evaluated in order to achieve the appropriate state of maturity to be bottled.
Serving & Cellarage: Stored upright in a dark, fresh and dry room with constant temperature, ideally no higher than 16oC. Decanting will help remove any deposit that may have occurred in bottle over time.
Tasting Notes: Clear and bright bronze colour with golden nuances.
On the nose it ́s very characteristic, full of exotic woods notes, roasted dry fruits, nougat notes and spices.
On the palate, it ́s sweet and concentrated, but at the same time fresh, leaves a long and warm aftertaste with notes of sugar canes molasses and spices.
