Vidigueira. From the amphitheater on the top floor of the cellar, the gentle slopes overlap as far as the eye can see. The dividing lines are discovered by the curvatures of the hills, lines made of trees, with floating lines of upright vines. The sound of the water from the waterfall in the courtyard, peace, the musical orchestration of the countryside, the light that illuminates and warms our faces, makes us cling to the chair in contemplation. It is in this cellar, factory, made of many spaces, areas for people, places for culture, also sacred, intimate spaces, reserved for the fine tuning of wines, the authentic jewels and gems. Everything is well camouflaged in the landscape, hidden by the mud walls, of pure Alentejo art, which, among other attributes, allows thermal stability for the conservation of wines. After all, we are in the hot Alentejo. But this Alentejo do Rocim is special. Is different! This framed photograph has a story. It has stories and plots.

Manual harvest into 12 kg boxes. At the winery, the grapes underwent manual
selection on a vibrating sorting table. Fully destemmed and lightly crushed. Foot trodden in traditional stone open fermenter (lagar) with indigenous yeasts.
Aging 16 months in clay pots. Six months in the bottle.

Alcohol content





A deep and dense mixture of balsamic, dried red and black fruits backgrounded with graphite-tinged minerality. Texture is polished, continuous and velvety in the mouth. Richly endowed with expansive fruit at mid-palate. Firm, ne tannins develop on tongue and inner lips. Acidity seems soft initially, but rushes in at end. Big and long and very purely fruited. A seriously impressive wine for long term aging.
