Located in the Alcoa Valley in Lisboa, the hilly region rising up from the coast around Lisbon, this estate has eleven hectares of vines planted on stony, limestone and clay soils. This very historic property, originally a Cistercian monastery founded in 1227, has had vines growing on its land since at least 1397. In the 16th century the order of the Capuchin friars took over the monastery, hence the name ‘Quinta dos Capuchos’.
Powerful and intense with complex aromas of dark berry fruits, balsamic and spicy dark chocolate. Vibrant on the palate with fine tannin, it is full-bodied and perfectly balanced. – DWM, March 2018
