Description

Vertente is made with grapes from 25 year old vineyards of Quinta de Nápoles and old vines planted on the banks of the Pinhão river, where Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz are predominant. The old vines contribute to the elegance of this wine, while the 25 year old vines give it youth. It is a wine that finds a unique balance between concentration, fruit, complexity and elegance, resulting in an excellent 2011 red. Made to be drunk young, it has a great ageing potential.

The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, with 15% new oak, where malolactic fermentation took place. Vertente has a bright, very distinctive ruby colour. The nose is complex and subtle, with black fruit aromas, spices and mineral notes reminiscent of wet earth. On the palate it is elegant and fine, with a good structure, well balanced and smooth tannins, with a long, fresh finish. It is a wine with character, promising a long life in bottle.
