2016 Quinta do Gradil Cabernet Sauvignon & Tinta Roriz red
Quinta do Gradil Bivarietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Tinta Roriz, reveals intense ruby colour, aromas of forest berries with balsamic note and tobacco leaf. In the mouth, it is structured with vigorous and well-integrated tannins, finishing long and persistent.
The Quinta do Gradil is referenced in the history of Portuguese wines since 1492. However, it was only in the 17th century that vines and wine became part of the estate's economic activity. But it was in the 19th century that one of the most decisive moments happened, when Dona Maria do Carmo Romeiro da Fonseca inherited Quinta do Gradil from her father, turning it into a reference agricultural business, focusing on wine production. Several years have passed and Quinta do Gradil continues to be a Portuguese reference in the world, and is now led by Luís Vieira.
