Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pequeno João is an opaque, garnet colour with violet streaks. 
Aroma: It has an elegant, slightly austere nose where both fruit and the barrel converse in almost aristocratic tones in a pact of non-aggression.  
Palate: The wine is long on the palate, where it can be chewed without losing its elegance. Here the fruit comes first, with the wood supporting it but not overpowering it. Its concentration is balanced by excellent acidity. The tannin structure of Pequeno João makes it a wine with great ageing potential.
