Farmers of Feitoria suggests 'Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras red 2014' for the holiday season

The tradition of the Douro is shown in the glass with elegance

If the Douro Farmers of Feitoria began the year to suggest its multifaceted 'Three Bagues Reserva red', a wine that grapes grapes from several farms of the producers that give body to the company, now is the time to propose a red wine, but with a single terroir. We speak of 'Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras', a wine that reflects a traditional Douro, and that therefore marries perfectly with this that is an era, par excellence, of traditions.

A note to the fact that the Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras red 2014 - the last harvest to reach the market - was awarded the 'Grandes Escolhas Prize' Big Choices Wines' Contest, promoted by Vinho Grandes Escolhas magazine. One more reason that does justice to the € 18.5 (RRP recommended) that has to invest in the purchase of a bottle of 750ml of this Douro red, also available in magnum (1,5l).

In Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras - located in Gouvinhas, in the sub-region of Cima Corgo -, on a hillside vineyard facing south and with plots between the ages of 30 and 60 years, are born the grapes that give rise to this nectar of the Douro, but also of the Gods! Keeping the tradition, they are trodden on foot in stone wineries; the stage is followed in new French oak barrels for one year. A low-yield wine, whose annual average is around 5,000 bottles.

Vivid red, intense and deep, Quinta da Costa das Aguaneiras red 2014 is born from a blend of Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, to which is added a "pinch" of grapes of other vine varieties, born in old (and therefore mixed) vineyards. This proves to be an exuberant red and quite fruity, thanks to the aromas of ripe black plum and cassis very typical of the Douro, and elegant. The discrete and well integrated wood contributes to the aromatic enrichment. In the mouth, the entrance is fresh and fruity, showing a soft and velvety wine, the tannins are well balanced with the acidity, giving it complexity. The end of the mouth is long and tasty.
