Freixo Family Collection 2015 Red
A year before the harvest and winemaking, the grapes from the various varieties that make up the Family Collection, were carefully selected and watched over according to their winemaking purpose. These grapes, which were picked at peak ripeness into 20 kg boxes, were separately vinified. The entire process was carried along by gravity into the fermentation tanks over 20 days with prolonged maceration that give this wine unrivalled ripe fruit characteristics.
Its 14-month ageing in new French oak casks give it a wide aromatic range and remarkable balance throughout its long life. It ages in the bottle for over eight months.
