What am I: Quinta do Javali is a small property of about 18 hectares. It is located along the left bank of the Douro River in the parish of Nagoselo do Douro - São João da Pesqueira, in a place with a history of wine production as old as the region itself.
ark red wine with a nose characterized by notes of ripe black fruit, with hints of stone of black plums, dark chocolate and cocoa black, bark, and some leather. The use of barrels of high quality is fully integrated, and never overpowers the fruity nature of the wine. In the mouth, the structure is striking, with tannins well presented, elegant and harmonious, that contribute to a silky body.
Manual harvest to 20 kg boxes. The grapes are fully destemmed before being trodden by foot in lagar. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels and in stainless steel. Aged 20 months in new and old French oak barrels. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a slight filtration.
