BATUTA Magnum red 2018


Batuta was first released in 1999 with the intention of revealing an impressive yet elegant Douro wine. “Batuta”, meaning the baton used by an orchestral conductor, proved to be the perfect name.
Batuta is not a wine made every year. The base of this wine is the vineyard of Carril, which is over 70 years old and also other old vines (around 100 years old), close to Quinta de Napoli. This wine is the result of a delicate vinification with maceration taken to the limit where every detail is taken into account to obtain a complex, fine and elegant wine. The wine ages in French oak barrels for a period of 20 to 22 months, presenting an intense and charged color, with great intensity and aromatic complexity. In the mouth it has great breadth and precision, austere, with discreet black fruit, very focused on minerality, has a great structure with velvet tannins and a seductive freshness. All combined in a long and very persistent finish, for a long bottle life and great aging potential.
Here the conductor is the in-house winemaker, Dirk Niepoort.
