Ribeiro Santo Envelope Red 2015 DOC Dão

Ribeiro Santo Envelope Red 2015


Winemaker's notes

Clear and open color. It shows a very fresh aroma, very mineral, with wild fruits, spices and reduction notes. In the mouth it is fresh, with a well-defined acidity, very polished tannins and a long, deep and delicate finish.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas


The harvest took place in the second week of September. A blend made from Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão from 40 year old vineyards, fermented 100% with stalks. In the middle of the process, to avoid the astringency of the tannins, we interrupt the contact with the skin. It aged for 12 months in 300L barrels and then remained for another 8 months in the bottle before leaving for the market.
