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 500 metres.This wine comes from a single 80-year-old vine. The old parcel is planted with vines of about 24 different varieties.
With aromas of red fruits and notes of spices, this is a full-bodied, fresh, elegant wine with a long persistence on the palate.
