José Neiva Correia
Single estate Quinta de Porto Franco
Made with the 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.
Ageing of one month in bottle after bottling.
Deep ruby in colour with superb complex aromas. This is a concentrated wine with fig, plum, raspberry, and violet flavours. There is a subtle oak spice on the finish, which is dry and extremely persistent.
Excellent with food or by itself. Will accompany almost any fuller flavoured dishes for example, roasts, barbecue, cheese, Italian and vegetarian gastronomy.
