Rita Marques, Manuel Sapage
Grapes harvested by hand for small boxes. Partial destemming, followed by crushing and pumping into stainless steel tanks. Temperature controlled fermentation, mild reassembly, maceration after one week. Malo-lactic fermentation in vat. Aging for 20 months in French oak barrels (50% new). It is defined as a classic Douro, with great seduction, very precise aroma definition, a unique natural freshness, silky texture, great balance and contained sumptuousness.
