Quinta da Terrugem has a dark garnet color, aromas and flavors of crystallized wild fruits, notes of menthol spices, coffee and chocolate. In the mouth, full, velvety, rich and complex in flavor, in a very harmonious and elegant combination.
Vineyard planted at almost 400 meters of altitude with northeast southwest orientation on a gentle slope, on red clay soil over schist, it benefits from the Mediterranean climate to produce grapes of exceptional quality that originate structured wines with great potential. The varieties are harvested separately, first Aragonez at the beginning of September, then Trincadeira and at the end of September Alicante Bouschet. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with temperature control for a week, followed by a period of postfermentative maceration that lasted for another 15 days. After this period the wine aged for twelve months in used French oak barrels. At the end of the aging period, the final blend of the wine was made, followed by bottling and aging in the bottle, which lasted for more than 6 months.
