António Ventura and Vera Moreira
The grapes were hand-picked from the best plots Quinta do Gradil, destemmed on the arrival at the winery. This wine was vinified in small stainless steel vats at a temperature of 26ºC with previous cold pelicular maceration. After the finish of malolactic fermentation this wine aged for 8 months in new French oak barrels.
Dark ruby color. Aromas of jam with notes of black plum, mixed with spices and smoked. In the mouth the tannins are rounded by bottle aging, the freshness and acidity linger well balan-ced with the structure, giving a prolonged finish, balanced and an genuine intensity.
Excellent pairing to red meat dishes, roasts and barbecues or with strong cheeses. Perfect match with Quesadillas with guacamole or Ricotta fritters with tomato sauce & courgette salad.
