Tasting notes

Dense in colour with powerful tannins. It is rich, well balanced with spice and black-currant aromas and a structured, fruity palate.

Producer

JOSE MARIA DA FONSECA VINHOS, SA

Vinification and aging

The grapes are hand harvested, slightly foot crushed and destemmed by hand with the “ripanço table”. The fermentation in talhas (capacity around 1.600 liters) is done with part of the must, skins and 30% stems at a temperature of about 28°C, controlled by spraying water four times a day on the talhas. The other part is fermented in lagares. This process is followed by two weeks of skin contact. After that, the wine is transferred directly into new French oak casks for 10 months.
