Crasto Superior
Red

This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro).

The grapes used to make this wine come from our property Quinta da Cabreira where we have 114 hectares of recently planted vines.

Crasto Superior is fresh and balanced on the nose. Fresh on the palate, great body and ripe firm tannins. Very complex notes of dark berried fruits, gum cistus and cocoa lingering towards the elegant finish. Excellent length.
