Quinta de Porto Franco
It was carefully vinified at a controlled fermentation temperature not exceeding 30 °C and fermented by the traditional method with two daily pumping. After fermentation the blanket was immersed for 30 days where he conducted the malolactic fermentation and extraction of soft tannins.
Wine is aged in new French of Allier oak barrels of 225 litre for 14 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum of 2 months after bottling.
It's a bright red, rich, full body, with a big structure and an harmonious balance between red fruits and the oak scents. In the tasting was smooth, intense, with a long, persistent and elegant finish.
A great wine for special ocasions and exquisite gastronomy. Excellent with a well-cured Portuguese ham from Barrancos or Chaves (Portuguese ham origins) or the Spanish Pata Negra, was also great complement to game, roasted red meats and long matured cheeses. We suggest serving this wine at the temperature of 16-18º C. We recommend also decanting the wine before serving as its unfiltered and gain with a previous breading for 15 minutes.
