Proving wines from Tinto Cão already a few years ago, it was possible to perceive the aging potential of this breed. With a troubled early life, its unique structure shows up over time.
Inspired by the rosés of the south of France, they are directly pressed durienses varieties of little color and with unusual aromas, cultivated in high zones.
In line with some of the wines of the Nicolau de Almeida family, this wine is a result of the blend of grapes from the upper and lower Douro, fermented in granite wineries.
Here is bottled the vintage with a Douro caste, Baroque Ink. The idea came about through the wine tasting of winemakers who bottled the wine earlier. In this way it is possible to maintain the freshness and the aroma of the fruit, the vividness of the vintage.
In the Upper Douro, contrary to expectations, we are surprised by the tradition of the cultivation of white varieties, evidencing the Rabigato. The combination of the knowledge of the vinification of white wines with a caste extremely well adapted to the land.
OS XISTOS ALTOS
After several experiments fresh gold was found on higher ground: the Rabigate! A caste prepared for long stages in barrel, allowing the creation of an elegant and complex Douro white.
