About Lagar de Darei
The Darei wines are a pure reflection of the Dão´s terroir. They are wines the family want authentic and real – they do not follow trends, they are natural, handmade, pure, real wines, with personality and consistency. Our natural approach to wine production allows us to enhance the terroir we are working with and get the maximum elegance and purity in our final product. We are working with relatively young vines between 10 and 15 years old, but the complexity is achieved because of all our natural elements combined: granitic soils, high thermal amplitude, altitude of our vineyards (+400m) and the grapes.
A very accessible red wine, very expressive black fruit aroma with balanced, polished tannins . Nearly decade of age hasn't dulled the wine at all...rather given it some depth and complexity. A treat from Portugal!
