Quinta de Monte Xisto is a surprising red wine with an odd superiority of the Douro region. Featuring a luminous appearance, it shows a bright red color, strong and complex aromas of macerated black fruits, harmoniously balanced by imposing and austere tannins, along with a soft frgrance of wood barrel and great acidity.
