O Produtor, tasting note published in July 13th 1905

Very elegant wine, contrasting with an intense structure of succulent tannins of enormous precision. The schistose texture, high gravity, sappy profile and purple colour reflect well the nature of the Touriga Nacional grape variety.

Quinta Nova

The first single-varietal planting study in the Douro region was carried out at Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo. Between 1979 and 1981, in collaboration with the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture, through the Centro de Estudos Vitivinícolas do Douro (Centre for Viticultural Studies), the best solar exposures were chosen in Quinta Nova for a study on the planting of three grape varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.
Plot 29, planted with the Touriga Nacional variety, is located at an altitude of between 170 and 205 metres. It is a unique example and a fundamental piece in the history of Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in its maximum expression of the terroir. A true reference in the Douro which, together with the century-old vineyard (Parcela 21), gives rise to a wine with a very elegant, almost feminine profile, contrasting with an intense structure of succulent tannins of enormous precision. The schistose texture, high gravity, sappy profile and purple colour reflect the nature of the Touriga Nacional grape.
A red wine with the oenology of Jorge Alves with 12 months of aging in French oak barrels.

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a place of extreme beauty in the heart of Douro valley and owned by Amorim family since 1999.
The family connection to the wine comes from afar, through its connection with the export houses of Vila Nova de Gaia in the cork business. Meanwhile the dream came true and the project is now in the hands of the 4th generation of the family.
With a story longer than 250 years, the property displays conserved structures and the cellar original building from 1764, after interventions by the architect Arnaldo Barbosa.
But the «quinta» is much earlier than this and history confirms it as a great land belonging to the Portuguese Royal House, having been identified its first owner in 1725.
The winery produced more than 3,500 barrels of wine from neighboring estates and it was soon ‘integrated in the first demarcation of the region’. The historic sites that are still preserved give notice to this historic weight.
An entrepreneur spirit and family vision did however the difference because, combined with a passionate commitment to the future, determined the beginning of multiple changes to a path of oenological excellence.
