Being a tribute to the river Alva, which gives its name to the sub-region where the vineyard with more than 80 years is located, the Alva Magna Red wine comes from a blend of native grapes from the region of Dão, with fermentation in granite winepressers and a rest in French oak barrels, which result in an elegant aroma wine, harmonizing fruit and wood notes, with mature black cherry, light chocolate. A soft and polished red wine, with a nice mouth volume and a great persistence, a well integrated present wood, and a very polished tannin, giving a light and dry texture. A balanced wine, in harmony and persistence.
