The top-of-the-range red from Casa de Santar estate in homage to the first count of Santar in the 18th century. It is a powerfully velvet wine, very elegant, packed with ripe tannins, dark fruits and a structure that demands aging. Keep for at least six years.
The aristocratic estate of Santar produces some of the most elegant wines in the Dão. The 2009 vintage adds richness to a deep, complex and powerful wine, which is full of dark plum and damson flavors, rounded by wood aging. Age for 3–4 years.
