Quinta da Manoella VV Old Vines Red Magnum
The grapes are from a very old vineyard with over 100 years old which has a field blend of more than 30 indigenous grape varieties. All grapes previously selected and de-stemmed were foot trodden in stone lagares during all the fermentation process (8days). The aging was developed in old french oak barrels during 16 months.

Deep cherry red.
The tannins are firm but no rough edges, very long, fresh and pure finish.
Red meats, roast beef and grilled meats.
Impresses from the first second, with the delicacy of the wood and the exuberant fruit. A lovely combination of dark chocolate, fruit sweetness and a dry mineral texture.
