O Produtor, tasting note published in July 14th 1905
Intense and dark purple red colour. Aromas of ripe fruit such as plum, very well integrated. Aromatic persistence with evident evolution in the glass. Dry and robust with a structured body, good acidity, soft and balanced. Overripe cherry fruit and raspberry jam. Rich mid-taste with good volume, balsamic notes and well integrated tannins. Pleasant and very long finish.
Typical Douro blend of a powerful and intense wine. Wine "built" to transgress time and break expectations.
To produce Quinta Alta Qualt Reserva, we did the manual harvest on 10 and 11 October 2019, carried out in boxes of up to 20 kg, manual selection on a mat. After destemming, it goes straight to the wine press, with controlled temperature for maceration with pre-fermentative foot treading also with controlled temperature.
70% of the wine is aged for 15 months in French medium toast oak barrels.
100% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.
Here, only the strongest, most resilient and courageous resist the trials of this arid land, where the sap springs forth in the form of still and fortified wines, of an unequalled quality and recognised all over the world.
The Douro is also known for being the cradle of extraordinary women who were ahead of their time. It is therefore the ideal place for the birth of an unusual wine brand led by a woman – Fernanda Zuccaro.
QALT is the reflection of this struggling, enterprising and audacious woman who, coming from the other side of the Atlantic, wishes to ally the ancestral history of the Douro to the modernity of the new markets.
An unconditional lover of international wines, she admires above all the tenacity of the women of the Douro – whose pinnacle is D. Maria Antónia Ferreira – and for this reason, she makes a point of honouring all the women of this land with her distinctive, elegant and above all audacious wines.
Its white, rosé and red wines have already taken their first steps on the national and Brazilian markets. Now, like an odyssey of the discoveries, it wants to conquer the world!
