Tasting Notes

"This is a bold, ripe wine, vibrant with black fruits. A smooth texture and firm tannins give it density as well as a succulent, rich character. While the wine is ready to drink now, it could also age for at least three years."

Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza was the 11th generation of the Fronteira Family . He was the father of the present owners of the company and was the person responsible for the creation and development of the Fiuza Brand. The company started operating in the beginning of the 20th century when Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza and his uncle begun to produce wine on the family estates. Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza had two passions: Winemaking and Sailing, and during is long life (he lived 102 years) he was able to develop both in an enthusiastic way. Regarding his glorious sailing career, as a sportsman, he was one of the most awarded Portuguese athletes.
