Casa Ferreirinha Callabriga 2017
55% Touriga Franca, 30% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz
Deep ruby in color. A strong aromatic intensity, with notes of black fruits, such as prunes and sour cherries, as well as cocoa and chocolate courtesy of a good maturation. Balsamic aromas of resin and menthol are also prominent, alongside a well-integrated wood element that bestows great complexity. On the palate, there is a nice weight, smooth yet firm tannins, a balanced acidity, notes of black fruit, a slight florality and a long finish.
This wine pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, such as grilled mature meat. It is also the ideal accompaniment to game or slightly fatty roasted fish.
