Winemaking

Pre-fermentative maceration at controlled temperature of 10-12ºC. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel lagares (troughs) with robotized treading at controlled temperature not exceeding 30ºC, in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible of skin constituents. The aromatic intensity and elegance originate from the grape varieties Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, as well as from many other noble varieties from very old Douro vineyards with more than 100 years old. Sousão contributes for the wine’s structure and concentration and Tinto Cão for its freshness and elegance. In order to enhance the quality and the desired wine profile, a strict selection of spirits has taken place and marks the difference through its organoleptic elegance. The various aromas together with the strong extraction have originated the intensity and elegance of an LBV.

Ageing

Maturation/Elevage in 640 liters French oak barrels four 2 years. Racking, analysis and regular tastings take place during this period in order to follow closely the evolution of the wine and define the final blend.
