Old Vineyards with Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Donzelinho Tinto, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Carvalha, Bastardo.
As if it was a musical piece, interpreting the work of others, is like picking up a song that has already been sung 1000 times. There are always different ways to sing. This ancestral vineyard has a delicate combination of notes, called chaste, which result in a classic (wine consuption) of the Douro. A set of more than 20 notes, in which Donzelinha Red, Bastardo and Tinta Carvalha are some of the one's we've heard play, say drink.
Carlão, 600m high, vineyards with 85 to 100 years old, Cima Corgo.
The grapes are harvested by hand and transported in 18Kg boxes. In the cellar, pressed with cold pre-maceration with stink. Ageing in neutral barrels for 18 months.
Ruby Color. Fresh nose where the barrel notes barely make themselves feel. Elegant attack with persistent but ballanced tannins. The aftertaste is long and textured.
