Concentrated, with mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese resinous bush). Good structure with mature round tannins and a persistent finish. 80% of the grapes come from vineyards planted in the 90&s and 20% from older vineyards, between 60 and 100 years old. The grapes ferment in 5 and 10 ton stainless steel vats, totally destemmed. Fermentation lasts for one week between 23ºand 25ºC with mechanical remontage. Ageing 70% for 16 months in stainless steel tanks and 30% in 225 litre used French Oak barrels (3rd and 4th use).
