The grapes are trodden on foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation they are macerated to obtain the best possible extraction in the mills, the traditional stone vats of the Quinta. It is matured for 18 months in wooden vats of various capacities.

Advice for Store and Serve:
Serve at cellar temperature (15/17°). Decanting is recommended to separate the sediment. This cellar wine matures over the years and develops a complex array of aromas. You can also enjoy it when young to feel the intensity of its fruit. It is best drunk 4 to 40 years after bottling. Drink within 48 hours of opening.
Particularly pleasant with a dessert, with dark chocolate or cheese. Also on its own at the end of a meal.
