O Produtor, tasting note published in January 25th 2023

Deep color like the mountains from which it emerged. Deep and intense aroma of red fruits and black olives, with strong hints of minerality, reflecting the mineral-hydrological richness of the region (the largest in Europe). Strong and structured palate like the granite supporting the vines, but with the subtlety, softness, and freshness of the valley that produces it. Mint and spices are the dominant traits. Sensations are always individual, but the product (the wine) is always collective.

Quinta de Arcossó

The red wine Quinta de Arcossó Grande Reserva is born in Arcossó – Vidago – Sub-region of Ribeira de Oura, on a 10.5-hectare plot integrated into a 12-hectare vineyard planted in 2003, located on a broad hillside at a medium altitude (400 meters), facing south, with about 20% slope. Soil of granitic origin.

The grapes were harvested on September 18 and October 3. The foot treading of the grapes was carried out in 1000 L vats, and they were subsequently placed in old chestnut barrels, over 100 years old, where alcoholic fermentation took place for 15 days. Two completely manual daily punch-downs were performed, and the wine was extracted by gravity. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, after which 50% returned to one of the barrels where alcoholic fermentation took place, and the remaining 50% went to new French oak barrels with a capacity of 500 liters for aging for 12 months. This is a wine in which no mechanical processes were used throughout its vinification and aging process. Bottled in June 2022, followed by cellar aging for 6 months. It is a wine that has not been fined or filtered.

Open and decant the bottle some time before serving. Try it with a posta à Mirandesa, a lamb stew, or even tapenade or aged cheese from Trás-os-Montes.
