2020 Quinta do Noval Vinhas do Passadouro Terroir Series red
This wine displays a deep and intense colour that reveals concentration and vitality. An abundance of aromas with intense notes of ripe fruits such as blackberry, black cherry, and plum. Spices like black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon add complexity. The tannins are firm and well-integrated, providing a solid and elegant structure. This wine is full-bodied with a velvety texture that fills the palate. It is complex and profound, unfolding aromatic expression as it evolves in the glass. It has a great ageing potential and will gain further aromatic complexity and smoothness in the tannins over time. While delightful already, its true essence will be revealed after a few years of cellaring.
Quinta do Noval is one of the oldest Port houses and one of the most prestigious, producing most of its wines from its grapes, namely all Vintage Port wines. Noval also produces one of the most emblematic Vintages ever produced in the Douro, the Quinta do Noval Vintage Nacional.
