From the original lot of 4 barrels of Tinta Caiada, we selected only one – the one whose authenticity and expression alone justified the existence of this limited edition of 200+ bottles.
Muted cherry red, dense in the middle of the glass. In the nose strong scents of smoked bacon, tar, black pepper and ripe dark berries. In the mouth, too, intense smoky notes, dark fruits, some wood and spices. Good acidity, tannins well integrated.
SERVICE & PAIRING
Serve at 14 – 16ºC. Goes well with mushroom dishes, risotto, strong cheese.
VINIFICATION & AGEING
Completely handmade, unfiltered and unfined.
Grapes come from carefully tended vines with strong yield reduction. Strict manual selection. Temperature-controlled fermentation in steel tank with manual push downs, long extraction on skins.
