Primado Red 2012

22,50 €

With very limited production, Primado Red is a rare wine of great complexity and unusual longevity. Clear, and bright, with a purplish red and violet hue, it has an aroma of ripe fruit with floral and spicy notes. The palate is full-bodied, velvety and persistent with spicy notes. It reveals austere tannins that give it a capacity for long ageing in the bottle.

Winemaking Vinification in a granite lagar with foot treading, alcoholic fermentation takes place by tanning the solid parts so that the macerations are gentle, allowing for a slow and prolonged extraction of the grape's phenolic components. This whole process is carried out at a controlled temperature of 22ºC throughout vinification. After all the potential structure, colour and aromas have been extracted, the wine is gently pressed. After this process, the wine remains in a vat where it undergoes malolactic fermentation.
Aging 12 months in French oak barrels and a long period in the bottle.

Great wines are not born by chance. The exceptional conjunction of climatic and geological conditions combine to form a rare balance.

Located in Santa Comba Dão, in Quinta do Coladinho, the vineyard planted at the beginning of the 90s covers about 2 hectares in a place that reveals a sense and characteristics very own. The granitic-sandy soil is typical of the region. The climate marked by the mountain ranges of Estrela, Caramulo, and Lousã, that surrounds it, is also influenced by the proximity to the reservoir and Aguieira water dam. The humidity caused by the morning mists provides balanced and slow maturations, thus achieving a wine very concentrated in tannins and fruit.

The objective was the production of a wine of great complexity and elegance, a wine of subtle and complex aromas, intense but with delicate structure in the mouth. Another purpose was to achieve aging capacity, a characteristic that distinguishes great wines. To avoid its consumption too young, which would lead to the loss of part of its potential, the commercialization of Primado is only made after prolonged stages that provide structure and complexity of aromas and flavors providing its consumption in a better moment, when it begins to reach the maturity.
