O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2018
Vicentino red is the wine that best depicts the fusion between the warm Alentejo plains and the coolness of the Costa Vicentina. Its intense aroma of ripe red fruit is complemented in the mouth by the tannins softened by the barrel and by the acidity that the fresh Atlantic breeze maintained. In the mouth the palate is filled with a round and elegant wine, and an admirable aromatic persistence.
Each variety ferments separately for 10 days at 26ºC, followed by a period of prolonged maceration, with contact with the films. Partial maturation in French oak barrels for 8 months.
30 years ago, when Ole Martin Siemfirst came to Portugal, the agricultural background from his educational and professional path led him to recognize the ideal soil and climate conditons for wine production in the region. Ole Martin Siem was born in Norway, but he has travelled all over the world developing his business of fruit and vegetables production and trade. Of all the visited countries, Portugal stood out both for the quality of the Alentejo wines and for the stunning landscapes of the Vicentino coast. It was ther, where the sea and the cliffs meet in one unique ecosystem that he chose to planthis vineyards. The harvested grapes from these vineyards, the result of hours of work and dedication, are the secret of the Vicentino.
