Vertente is made from grapes from the 25 year old vineyards of Quinta de Nápoles and old vines planted on the slopes of the river Pinhão, where Touriga Franca and Tinta Amarela are predominant. The old vines contribute to the elegance of this wine, while the 25 year old vines give it youth. Made to be consumed young, it has great ageing potential.
The harvest took place in September. After selection at the vine, a second selection on the sorting table took place. 70% of the wine fermented in stainless steel wine presses, with an automatic pressing system and the remaining 30% fermented in cone-shaped stainless steel vats. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation took place.
Beautiful violet colour of medium concentration. While young, is restrained in the aroma, with profoundly mineral aromas, tense and with very soft floral aroma. Well integrated wood, bringing some good smoked and iodized notes. Good volume in the mouth, with determination and with tannins that recall the schist. Acidity and fruit well combined. Long and fresh finish. A wine that will grow a lot in the bottle, although it already has a good balance.
Food Suggestions: Roast beef (with yorkshire pudding), tradicional portuguese duck rice, tradicional codfish dishes, Magré de Canard. Cheese suggestions: Camembert, Sainte Albré, Brie.
