The prestige of Noval Nacional is partly attributed to its small production – only 200-300 cases are produced in the declared years (this represents only a small percentage of the entire Quinta do Noval Port wine production – between 1,200 and 5,000 cases each year declared). Most of the Nacional grape varieties are recognized as the best for Port wines: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão and Sousão. Due to small production, Nacional is always sold in very small quantities. Arriving on the open market, Nacional is sold for extremely high prices, reflecting the exceptional quality and rarity of this Port that has the highest interest among collectors.
Deep and concentrated in color, it has an incredibly vivid, pleasant and spicy nose. There are some dark, earthy and savory notes, as well as firm tannins and incredible intensity. Very tasty, with a lovely structure. Just brilliant.
