Vinification Method

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

Wine is aged in French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt for 3 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 3 months after bottling.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby color, this wine is full of character and flavor. The palate shows delicious ripe but mature fruit with distinctive forest fruit aromas and hint of oak-spice cassis. It has a smooth, full body with a good firm structure and very persistent, elegant soft finish. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Very well in color and aroma, here is ripe but not tiring fruit that commands the tasting, it’s very attractive. Polished, soft in the mouth, well balanced and with great gastronomic aptitude, is an absolutely consensual red, everyone likes this."
