Vicentino 2017 Red
Soil and Grape Varieties
Planted on clay-schist and sandy loam soils with low yield potential, the Vicentinos varieties have their best attributes.
The low productivity imposed by the earth will act as a stimulus to the quality of the grapes that form, promoting an ideal concentration of organic acids, sugars and phenolic compounds. Achieving this balance between quantity and quality, coupled with a mild climate, allows us to obtain a raw material of excellence.
The Vicentino vineyards are privileged on the Alentejo coast, enjoying both the Portuguese sun and the Atlantic breeze. In Zambujeira do Mar, where the high Alentejo temperatures are attenuated by the Atlantic, the typical concentration of inland viticulture is balanced by the freshness and humidity of the sea, leading to an ideal maturation. Thus, grapes ripen slowly and evenly, with cool, wet winters, mild summers, and the constant presence of sea winds, creating wines where elegance overlaps with robustness.
