Berardo Reserva Familiar presents intense and deep red color; concentrated and complex nose, rich in red fruit, such as sour cherry and cherry, with floral touches and vanilla nuances from the oak barrels where the wine aged. In the mouth, sensations of ripe fruit, well combined with round and ripe tannins, firm acidity and a long, complex and elegant finish. It is expected a good ageing potential in the bottle.
For the 2015 vintage, we selected for this wine two red wines of different varieties planted in the Serra da Arrábida, in the Peninsula de Setúbal region. The first, a full-bodied but elegant Syrah, deep in color, was made at the end of October 2015. After a traditional winemaking followed an 26 months in new French oak barrels. The second wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon also from our Casais da Serra vineyard; this “terroir” is ideal for slow and complete maturation of these varieties originating great wines and great ageing potential in wines. This wine was bottled on July of 2018 and, already in bottle, it staged in the cellars until its commercialization.
