Quinta Nova Vinha Centenaria 2018
Never giving in to the ease of a banal farm, in the vineyard there is always a special look at a small and old plot of Tinta Roriz (1.46 ha) at Quinta Nova, located next to the chapel of the Douro River, at 100m altitude and with sun exposure to the east -west. Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) clearly demonstrates the viticultural challenge and human persistence in preserving an ancient and authentic Douro.
The austerity of the variety is clearly noticeable in the mouth, but at the same time, you are seduced by a somewhat contemporary sophistication that, combined with old centenary vines, originates a blend that is a reference in the Portuguese Douro: a wine full of minerality, blue fruits, rich in spicy notes, with a very firm structure and a very narrow mouth. The high concentration, density and depth express its origin well.
