Aging: The grapes from Vale do Inferno were trodden by foot in granite presses and later fermented in small stainless steel vats, followed by aging in French oak casks. Bottled in December 2017.
Combinations: Can be drunk now or aged up to 10 years. It preferably accompanies strong dishes with red meats. Good pairing with cheeses, namely from Serra (from Estrela).
Mouth: In the mouth it has an intense attack, full of flavors, very seductive and smooth. High quality tannins give it length of tasting and seriousness.
Vinification: The harvest was long and slow. Jorge Moreira always says that deciding when to start cutting the grapes is his most important decision and this year was not easy. We started cutting Vale do Inferno on the 9th of September before the rain.
Nose: Very expressive and complex nose, black and red fruit, flowers and citrus notes are part of its bouquet.
