Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Portal Criança has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Clean, straightforward aromas of wild berries, menthol and underbrush, combined with some creamy toasted notions, hints of vanilla and notes of Jamaican pepper and clove. This wine by Celler Piñol is intensely expressive.

Palate

Round and pleasant, with a smooth texture and a meaty body. Vanilla, toast, red and black fruit, dim mineral notions and some remembrances of exotic spices.This red wine from Terra Alta has a good acidity, ripe tannins and long, smokey and balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

Both drinkable and intense, Portal Criança 2015 is a great wine to share with friends.
