Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional Red 2012
Quinta do Vallado, established in 1716, is one of the oldest and most famous “Quintas” in the Douro Valley. It once belonged to the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, and still belongs to her descendents.
The grapes were vinified in the new winery in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, each holding a maximum of 4 tons of grapes, with manual remontage. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in their original storage stainless steel tanks and was then racked into 225 l French Oak barriques where it stayed for 16 months.
Very concentrated, with balsamic oak notes, red fruit and violet aromas. Sweet, round and matured and silky tannins, very balanced, with a long fresh finish.
