Uivo - Vinhas Velhas Tinto

Sale price€14,49

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout


This robust red is a blend of over 20 Douro native grapes, primarily Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, and Rufete, hand-harvested from 70 year old vines. The grapes undergo minimal intervention throughout the process, with 65% destemming and long fermentation in small lagares. For added complexity, a portion of the wine sees extended skin contact for three months, while the entire blend spends 36 months aging in French and chestnut oak barrels, 15% of which are new.
