This wine was produced in our Quinta in the midst of Douro, located right between the subregions of Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The grapes Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca, where carefully selected and handpicked being then carried to the winery in 400kgs containers. Full destemming and a maceration at low temperature helped to extract selectively the best fruit aromas of each grape. Fermentation followed to the cold maceration at a controlled temperature of 30ºC. The degradation of the malic acid took place in French oak barrels where the wine maturated for the following 14 months.
