Lua Cheia Old Vines Red 2017 (Douro)
This is a curious and bold project in which grapes are selected from small producers who are not capable of undertaking own winemaking (but who produce high quality grapes). The goal is to make wines that show the essence of each of the regions where they are produces and, using Old World teachings, to discover and express the “terroir”. Similar wines usually cost 98% more and among top 10% of all wines in the world (Vivino).
