Casa da Passarella is one of the historic estates of the Dao appellation. The estate was founded in 1892 a few years before the formation of the appellation. Its wines express the complexity and freshness of the region on granite terroirs at an altitude of 500m.

On the nose there are aromas of white fruit, yellow fruit and lemon. The mouth is elegant, light, fruity. It is a voluminous wine on the palate, with vibrant acidity, the finish is long and persistent.
