Vinification Method

Classic fermentation method, at 28º. 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 French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt from Seguin Moreau for 9 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 12 months after bottling.

A Great wine, exclusive, for special occasions.

How to Serve

Excellent by itself, and as complement of red meat and game dishes. Quinta do Rocio 2006 it’s unfiltered. This means it should be served with additional care and if possible in a certain way: The bottle should be in the vertical for at least for one hour before serving to let the sediments fall down. It was important to use a good cork screw in order to take out the cork slowly not perforating the cork from one side to another. The wine should be decanted slowly, and 95% of the liquid only. The wine must be in the decanter for at least 15 minutes breathing before serving. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
