VINHA GRANDE is a classic and intense Douro red, with a marked character reflecting all the richness and quality of the region in the creation of the best blended wines. VINHA GRANDE is part of the wine portfolio of Casa Ferreirinha, the brand with a greatest tradition in Douro quality wines and one of its main world-wide standard-bearers.

VINHA GRANDE 2002 shows an appealing red ruby colour. Its aroma is dominated by floral (violet) and ripe red fruits notes, and reflects the complexity of both maturation and evolution in the bottle. On the palate is a balanced and full-bodied wine with well structured tannins smoothened by the fruit which enhances a rich and persistent finish. VINHA GRANDE is ideal for drinking after 3-4 years in the bottle and will improve over time.

Reviews:

"Traditional in style, with lots of raspberry and red cherry flavors joining pretty spice and orange peel notes on the crisp finish. Tinta Roriz, Tinta Francesa and Tinta Barroca. Drink now through 2010. 20,000 cases made. –KM" -Rated 88, Wine Spectator

" From Ferreira’s own vineyards in the Douro, this smooth, ripe, wood laden wine is spicy, with blackberry fruits, a shot of dark tannins, and fresh, juicy acidity. Age for another 2–3 years before drinking. — R.V. (9/1/2007) — 88 " -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast
