Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines 2015
Deep ruby in colour. The nose shows a particular complexity, with notes of gum cistus and fresh spice, very well integrated with exuberant aromas of wild fruits. Elegant on the palate, rapidly evolving into a wine of excellent volume and a compact structure made of fresh, velvety-textured tannins. The finish is lingering and balanced. A wine that mirrors the unique identity of the old vines of Quinta do Crasto.
This focused, full bodied red is rich and fruity with raspberry tart and ripe cherry fruit detailed with licorice snap and mineral elements. Full, integrated tannins frame the tangy, floral-tinged finish. Better than previously reviewed.
