Casa Ferreirinha 'Vinha Grande' Douro Tinto 2017

Portugal Collection by Philglas & Swiggot

This producer, founded in 1952, is named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira. She was affectionately nicknamed 'Ferreirinha' by her countrymen, and Casa Ferreirinha, the first producer in the region dedicated to making light wines, pays homage to her memory. Purchased by Sogrape in 1987, it has 520 hectares of vineyard in the Douro in all of its three sub-regions: Lower Corgo, Upper Corgo and Douro Superior. The winemaking is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a freshness, like Esteva and Papa Figos, allied to a lovely depth and texture, as with Vinha Grande Tinto and Quinta da Leda.

This wine is deep ruby red in colour. There are complex aromas of red and black fruits with hints of chocolate and well-integrated oak. The palate has well-integrated acidity, velvety tannins, a delicate minerality and notes of red berries. The finish is elegant and long.
