Origin
The grapes used to make this wine, came from the best and oldest parcels of grapes from Quinta de S. José which is situated in Cima Corgo, next to the river, from 150 to 300m of altitude. North exposition and very schist soil.

Vinification
Grapes harvested by hand, for 25 kg boxes in its ideal point of ripeness; intending to show a vigorous maturity, leading to higher aromatic and polyphenolic concentrations. After soft crushing and total destemming, the grapes are trodden by foot in vats where they ferment, thus allowing the quality of constituents present in films of very ripe grapes pass smoothly into the wine. After malolactic fermentation, the wine aged in used barrels of French oak of 225 and 400 liters for approximately 12 months.

Tasting

Purple color and very deep.

Very complex aromas and distinct predominantly the fruity and floral character with spicy notes, mint fresh from the wood very discreet and well integrated into the wine.

In the mouth shows fruit complexity with high level of tannins that give it a long aftertaste.
