Region: Douro (Cima Corgo).
Dye variety (ie with pulp color) from the north of the country - “it is said to have come from the banks of the Lima river” - already writes Girão in 1822. He says the same, though it has so much color that it is possible to make “barks” excellent ink to cover the colorless wines, ”as the current role of Sousão in the Douro is described. Farther north, the same caste with the virile name of Vinhão, is drunk raw, extreme, crude and proud as a bastion of the last signs of rurality.
So is this Sousão or Vinhão?
In the winery, mill, cold maceration and 100% aging in new French oak barrels for 11 months.
Ruby color elegant and intense as Sousão can give us.
The aroma feels freshness, velvety attack with good mouth and persistent finish.
It goes well with meat of pot, game and lamb.
Winemaker: Joana Maçanita, António Maçanita.
