Cara Metade Colheita is only produced in special years.

It's a wine of ruby colour with an intense aroma of ripe fruits and firm, a lively acidity and tamed tannins that give it a persistant and elegant finish.

In order to ensure its highest quality, this wine wasn't cold stabilized and natural sediments might be visible.

Therefore it must be carefully decanted.
