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.
This red wine is deep red in color with a nose dominated by notes of ripe red fruit with some hints of strawberry jam and raspberry, combined with nuances of spice. So well integrated, there are notes of toasted barrels of high quality, giving a greedy character to the wine, with aromas of vanilla and brioche. In the mouth, it confirms the fruity aromas in harmony with elegant structure.
Manual harvest to 20 kg boxes. The grapes are fully stemmed before being trodden by foot in lagar. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels (50%) and in stainless steel (50%). Aged 18 months in new and old French oak barrels. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a slight filtration.
