Awards2018: ROBERT PARKER RATING (2022): 88 POINTS
"...The 2018 Quinta Valle Longo Vintage Port is a blend of Touriga Nacional (40%), Touriga Franca (30%) and Tinta Roriz (30%), all aged in old balseiros for just four months.

It´s live fresh and succulent with a relatively easy feel to it. It´s pretty tasty..."
