Winemaking Vinification in a granite press with foot treading, alcoholic fermentation takes place by tanning the solid parts, so that the macerations are smooth, allowing a slow extraction of the phenolic components of the grape. This entire process is achieved at a controlled temperature of 22°C throughout the winemaking. After extracting the full potential of structure, colour and aromas, a gentle pressing follows. 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 bottle.

Wine's Awards 90 Points Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

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.
