O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2017

At Quinta da Cassa, the overripe plots of grapes are harvested for Port wine, the remaining plots of grapes are selected to give rise to this very concentrated wine. Sweet and warm aroma, black fruits, rock-rose and floral notes in balance with the barrel notes. In the mouth the ripe and voluminous tannins with acidity make it a genuine Douro with a persistent finish.

Cassa

Manual harvest. Reception with total destemming and crushing immediately, the grapes are fermented by grape varieties and blends, so that a rigorous selection can be made at an early stage, which will then lead to the “blend”, very traditional of the old world, reveals the art of selecting grapes by plots and the art of selecting wines to then blend. The fermentation is done in stainless steel vats of small capacity, with temperatures around 28 ºC. Gentle and controlled macerations in order to obtain elegant and aromatic wines. Part of the blend ages for 12 months in predominantly French oak, with a small percentage of American wood.

Rui Roboredo Madeira Vinhos

In one of the most remote areas of the Iberian Peninsula, on the border between the Douro Superior and Beira Alta regions, it was among family that its passion grew for the aromas and smells of this land that shapes our character.
After coming into contact with many cultures of living and making wine, in various parts of the globe, Rui Madeira returned to the great Douro valley convinced that they have the potential to make the best wines in the world.
 Out of respect for nature, due to the way we cultivate their vineyards and wines reflect his experiences, which smell and taste of land, of schist, damp granite, rock rose, wild flowers and fruit. 
It is in the winery that he makes wines with the character of our ‘terroir’, expressed through native grape varieties, which instil with a style of their own and an international profile.
