Parcels of vines situated on the steep slopes of the River Pinhão at an altitude of 150-400 m, with poor, stony schistose soil; low yielding vines with grapes of high concentration and quality.

GRAPE VARIETIES

Traditional to the Douro, where Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Sousão predominate.

VINIFICATION

Chosen and selected from the best plots of our already older vines. Fermentation in granite tanks and trodden by foot. A rare blend of wines aged in French oak barrels for no less than forty years.

Characteristics

Tasting notes
