Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons. Vineyard Location: This wine comes from a vineyard located in the south of Ancas, in the municipality of Anadia, in the privileged area of Figueira da Costa. Solar exposure: east-west. Soil type: clay and limestone soils. Climate: moderate Mediterranean with mild winters and not very hot summers. It thus has the proper conditions of a transition zone in which Atlantic and Mediterranean influences are mixed. The vineyard produces the grapes in the Integrated Production system. Vinification: decanting / crushing and cooling of the grapes in the wine cellar in small open wineries, where the maceration begins pelicular and after fermentation. The treading is done manually with wood masses to increase a greater extraction of the wine characteristics of the Merlot variety. Stage: After slow fermentation in small open wineries, the wine passes to cement tanks and Inox tanks, where it rests until January of next year, which is then cleaned and transferred to new French oak barrels where it stages 6 months.
