About the wine

The winery was founded in 1942 by Francisco Casas Gómez, it is still a family run winery, with the fourth generation now in charge. The vineyards cover more than 10 hectares, surrounding the cellar. The climate is continental with influence from the Atlantic and the River Douro, there are extreme contrasts in temperature during winter and summer. There is a great wine making tradition in this area, which predates the Roman era. Eduardo Casas has now taken over the Bodega to continue the next generation of the Casas legacy.

TASTING NOTES

The nose is very explosive, with red fruit and liquorice that are well assembled with spicy, toast and chocolate nuances. The mouth is full, with aromas of fruit liquorice and seasoned roasted chocolate.

FOOD PAIRING

Ideal with BBQ or roast, red meats and game, rice dishes, cheese, pâté and Tapas.
