About Prunus Tinto

“Dão region is one of the oldest and one of the most complex regions of Portugal. The only one with thick layer of snow during the winter. On the hills of the highest Portuguese mountain Serra de Estrela our vines fight or with frost or with baking sun. As an effect our Prunus deliver personality difference, elegance, freshness and softness. Indigenous grapes give aromas and flavours that captivate and seduce and become unmistakable and unforgettable.”

“Elegance on a grand scale. Lightly oaked and perfectly balanced, with a silky texture and crisp edge. The nose is cram-packed with plums, mulberries, blackberries and anise. On the palate, black cherry and raspberry fruit tones with creamy and chocolaty oak flavors. Delicious with poultry and pork dishes.”
