Quinta da Carolina Red
Careful selection of grapes in whole bunch for the cement mill where they spontaneously ferment at controlled temperature. After a maceration period of about a week, the grapes are picked and the wine continues its fermentative processes in 500 liter French and Austrian oak barrels. Aging for 24 months in French and Austrian oak barrels, followed by a year in stainless steel, where it stabilizes naturally throughout the seasons. Bottled manually, by gravity without filtering or sticking and with minimal SO2 adjustments. It is a wine with a little extracted profile, we look for the elegance and freshness that an old vineyard with exposure to the north can give us. Open ruby color, shallow, with herbal notes combined with fresh fruit on the nose, deep and persistent in the mouth, with Douro and wooden aging notes. A wine to enjoy while young, but clearly aging. Advisable for decanting. Contains Sulfites.
