Assobio is the name of the hillside at the Murcas estate, where the highest vineyards are found. Murcas is located at the head of the oldest D.O.C. wine region in the world (est. 1756), on the right margin of the Douro river.
The wine displays deep ruby red color with purple edges. On the nose, aromas of red berries and spice. An elegant palate displaying youthful fruit with fine tannins and balanced acidity coaingt the mouth, on the finish.
"Assobio is from a single vineyard in the Quinta dos Murças estate. A powerful, structured expression of Douro wine, it has black fruits, dark tannins, some subtle layers of wood aging and great concentration. Dark and richly fruity, it needs to mature before drinking. Wait until 2017.
