Real Companhia Velha
Tinto Cão is synonymous with Douro! Currently, it is one of the grapes most appreciated by the new generation of vine growers in the Douro region for its adaptability, resistance and low productivity. Of small berry and with a very thick film, this caste determines a traditional approach in the vinification process. For this reason, the fermentation chosen for this 'Real Companhia Velha Séries Tinto Cão 2015' was carried out in stone mills with the traditional step on foot, followed by a stage in French oak barrels (15% in new wood) for 18 months, following which a red wine of great expression and character was born, revealing an enormous complexity of aroma and rusticity through aromas of red fruits and herbaceous suggestions. The nose shows a distinctive and charming profile. In the mouth it shows rustic, with tannin present, but delicate, and with an elegant profile. The end of the test is very long and persistent.
