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.
Traditional to the Douro, where Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Sousão predominate.
Fermentation in granite tanks and trodden by foot. Blend of various wines aged in oak casks for a short period of time in order to preserve the verve of a young wine.
Ruby red in colour. Lively aroma with red fruits, cherry, plum and raspberry. Weighty to the mouth, given a great freshness and irreverence.
