This new wine from Casa da Passarella is born from Paulo Nunes’ investigations into the writings of Cincinato da Costa. It seems that in ancient times, whites from the Dão were mostly made with Dona Branca (in the Douro known as Jampal) and Barcelo grapes. A white wine from the Dão with a differentiating character, famous for its aromatic delicacy and structure, but also for the history that this unique variety was able to write in the past of this century-old house.
The first variety gave volume and the second elegance. And it’s not hard to believe, because if there’s one feature that suits this Fugitive, it’s finesse.
Here there is only delicacy, with a profile that, in almost all the wines of Passarella, always goes towards the delicate flowers of the linden and dried herbs. As the temperature rises, you can feel some faint notes of tropical fruit. In the mouth, what impresses is its dryness and acidity. The winemaker Paulo Nunes once again set the record straight and was successful in this limited edition of 1138 bottles!
