Classic fermentation method, involving selective extractive enzymes, which are compatible with the active dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.
Wine is aged in American, French of Allier and Portuguese oak barrels of 225 Lt, for 3 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 5 months after bottling.
Deep full body red wine, structured with a fruity aroma combined with oak scents. The ageing in oak barrels develops a smoke fragrance that intensifies the pleasure to drink this wine. The end of the tasting is long, velvety, intense and pleasant. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Tasted in 2014. Perfectly in color and dense aroma, with ripe fruit and a vigorous style but without hurting. The vegetable side mark well the tasting in the mouth, and this is also a Douro characteristic. The set is in good state of balance between the parts."
A superb accompaniment to fuller flavoured food such as meats, pasta, etc. This wine is also delicious served without food. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
