Pedro Ribeiro and his wife Catarina Vieira moved to Vidigueira, an area which benefits from an excellent micro-climate, to produce wines that are true to the historical traditions of Alentejo. Their wines are fermented in impermeable clay pots called Talha, where both wine and skin remain in contact for a much longer period until November.
Aromas of black cherry, plum and asparagus notes. Medium bodied with great freshness and minerality. This wine was not stabilized before bottling, this does not affect its potential development, but can create a slight natural deposit during aging.
Portuguese red wine from Alentejo Portugal, made with Trincadeira, Moreto and Tinta Grossa.
...Wild sour notes of little red berries along with a delicate smoky sweetness. Fine grip in the texture here, perfectly married to the fresh acidity and juicy fruit, giving intensity without weight. Irresistible, pure pleasure.- 17.5 pts Julia Harding MW, Jancisrobinson.com
