The Touriga Nacional from Quinta de Cidrô is a very complex wine with a great varietal character, showing aromas of blue berries and sharp floral notes. Although intense and expressive on the palate, it reveals freshness and elegance, making it very enjoyable to drink while young. Nevertheless, we also recommend saving a few bottles for the next few years.
