Fita Preta Vinhos
Full Bodied Wine
Field blend of Roupeiro, Antão Vaz, Rabo de Ovelha, Arinto, Tamarez, Alicante Branco.
A search to understand the impact of traditional carving winemaking on the production of Alentejo whites. Respect for the local clay and the traditional pitch, using old Alentejo carvings, however, reviewing old texts that reinforce the vinification in "open spout", without skin contact, and that preserve the unique characteristics of Alentejo soils and grape varieties.
A different white, marked by the carving, based first on the fruit and freshness of the grape varieties, with a second dimension dominated by the earthy, almost chemical notes of the carving. In the mouth some texture, always supported by tension and acidity.
