Quinta do Crasto Douro Reserva 2010

25 to 30 different grapes varieties from vines around 70 years old. The grapes were taken to the wineryand inspected on a sorting table on arrival. The grapes were then completely destemmed and slightly crushed. After this, the must was transferred to stainless steel tanks and fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.Aged about 16 months in French oak barrels (85%) and American oak barrels (15%). Deep ruby colour. Nose is intense and fresh red fruit and gum cistus aromas with elegant spicy hints. Very attractive on the palate, evolving into a dense structure of fine-textured tannins, which is perfectly integrated with fresh red fruit flavours. Long and lingering finish. Great ageing potential.
