60% Tinta Cão, 30% Vinhão, 10% Loureiro, 10% Other varietals
The two red grapes (Tinta Cão & Vinhão) were sourced from a small producer practicing organic viticulture in the Vinho Verde Region, located in Marco de Canavese. Since Vinhão is highly pigmented, the maceration time was kept at a minimum. Spontaneous fermentation was done in concrete and stainless steel with chestnut flowers and combined with 10% Loureiro (same as Doralice) to add zest and other aromatic notes. Minimal SO2 added at bottling (30ppm). Unfiltered.
