Ribeiro Santo Red 2016 DOC Dão

Ribeiro Santo Red 2016

DOC Dão

Winemaker Notes
Bright red-violet color, with the notes of red fruit such as cherries or
strawberries, and with the floral fruit hints typical for Touriga Nacional.
Excellent acidity combines with a velvety texture and fresh final.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas



Vinification

The harvest took place in the second week of September. The grapes were picked up by hand, into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful
selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed into small stainless steel tanks, where they macerated for 24h
at low temperature, before starting the fermentation at controlled temperature.
The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with gentle pumping for a good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was
transferred to a stainless steel tank where it naturally decanted until the time of bottling.
