Ribeiro Santo Pinha Red 2016 DOC Dão

Ribeiro Santo Pinha Red 2016


Winemaker Notes 
Red, almost violet color, with the perfumes of black mulberry and blackberries and a light nuance of pine needles. The wine is very fresh, young with a sweet but elegant palate.

Winemakers Carlos Lucas

The harvest took place in end of September. The grapes were harvested by hand, into small boxes of 18kg, according to a careful selection of
the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were completely destemmed to small stainless steel tanks, where they macerated for 24h at low
temperature, before starting the fermentation with selected yeasts at controlled temperature. The fermentation lasted for 12 days with gentle
pumping for good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was stored in stainless steel vats, where it acquired aromas
of fresh fruit.

REVISTA DE VINHOS (harvest 2013) – Very clear and straight aroma, with a little bit of red fruit and mineral notes. Medium body with evident tannins, good, integrated acidity gives an expressive finish.
