Quinta Nova Red 2012, Magnum-wooden case pack
Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a place of extreme beauty in the heart of Douro valley and owned by Amorim family since 1999. The family connection to the wine comes from afar, through its connection with the export houses of Vila Nova de Gaia in the cork business. Meanwhile the dream came true and the project is now in the hands of the 4th generation of the family.
With a story longer than 250 years, the property displays conserved structures and the cellar original building from 1764, after interventions by the architect Arnaldo Barbosa.
Grapes selection at the entrance of the cellar. Total stripping with cold premaceration for 3 days and fermentation in stainlesssteel tanks for 8 days. Skins maceration and temperature control with storage in inox and bottle. No filtration or stabilization processes.
An intense red wine with violet notes. The fresh aroma presents red fruits in a floral and balsamic bottom. Some how unctuous, it shows light tannins and a pleasant final with floral notes and elegance.
