Over a century ago the Costa Barros de Figuerido family started making wine at an idyllic spot close to the Dão river in central Portugal. Conditions here on the Quinta Vale Das Escadinhas estate are ideal for crafting hearty red wines thanks to the steep south-facing slopes on which the family’s vines are planted and the warm Mediterranean summers.
This fine Reserva is created with Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Alfrocheiro Preto grapes sourced from the family’s Quinta da Falorca vineyard as well as a small proportion from the 80 year old vines in their Esmoitada vineyard. The grapes are carefully harvest by hand and are then subject to foot treading in the family’s ancient granitic lagar which has been used in this way for generations.
Following fermentation the wine is aged in French oak barrels for a period of 18 months and then matured in the bottle for a shorter time before it is deemed ready for release. The result is a deep, inky red wine that exudes rich aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice. On the palate the body is full and generous with a firm structure, ripe tannins and a balancing freshness which brings a touch of elegance to this powerful wine.
