The 2013 Terra is the result of an excellent year and an again improved winemaking. It is a very classic Terra in the style of the Quinta with opulence and intensity. The purity and complexity of fruit is outstanding and combined with some charcoal and vanilla notes form the barrel ageing the wine delivers plenty of aromatic pleasure. It is very solid in structure with an almost irresistible creamy texture and lots of fruit extract, creating a very dense yet balanced mouth feel. The final is long with lots of fruit flavours. If stored below 15°C this Terra will last for 10 years.
With all kind of meat dishes or pastas.
Serve with 15º-17º.
