Vinification and ageing
All our grapes are foot trodden and fully fermented in lagares for 7 to 10 days at temperatures ranging from 20° to 25° Celsius. We then rack the resulting wines in new Allier French oak 225 liter casks from various coopers (Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Nadalié and François Fréres), where they go through malolactic fermentation. 
All wines are then carefully aged for 15 months in barriques (75% new and 25% one year old French oak), keeping all different fermentations completely separated until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines.

Tasting

A wine with velvety tannins, long and persistent finish and full of fruit.

Quinta da Ferradosa Douro Tinto is the fruit of a vineyard that is so diverse in grape varieties as it is in its soil types. This creates a wine, which is very concentrated on the nose.

In the mouth reveals black fruits like plum and black cherry allied to pine notes. The tannins are present, and bring to the wine an incredible structure.
