CARM RESERVE 2018 75cl
RED WINE DOURO
The wine is vinified in the cellar of our Quinta das Marvalhas in Almendra, in the heart of Douro Superior. Our winery is equipped with the latest technology and enables complete control of temperature, essential for our region of extreme climates. After grapes arrive at the winery, we eliminate clusters which are not in perfect condition. After total de-stemming, the grapes are crushed softly and pass through a thermal shock, followed by a period of cold pre-fermentative maceration of about 12 to 24 hours. The must is transferred to broad and low fermentation stainless steel vats, where the maceration occurs for 8 days at 22ºC.
TASTING NOTES The wine’s nose is very fresh and intense with notes of wild black fruits and black cherries balanced with seductive hints of licorice. Subtle notes of wood make the aro-ma more complex. In the mouth, the wine is fabulously concentrated, hot, showing firm tannins and a smooth texture as well as a very persistent finish that strongly displays the intensity of the wines of the Douro Superior. This wine pairs with meats, cheeses and, in general, Mediterranean cuisine.
