The grapes that give rise to this wine are a field blend of older vines from Quinta dos Castelares, in Freixo de Espada to Cinta, in the Upper Douro, at an altitude between 500-600 meters. With the aim of obtaining the necessary balance to a wine that we want full bodied but with elegant profile. Soils of schist, carne in terraces with dominant north-east orientation. 

Manual harvesting. Total destemming followed by crushing. The grapes are fermented by vine varieties and vineyards, in order to make the selection that allows a better final result. Fermentation in stainless steel vats of small capacity, at a temperature of 28ºC. Controlled and gentle maceration, with the aim of obtaining concentrated, aromatic and elegant wines. 

6 months in French (2/3) and American (1/3) oak barrels. 

Quinta dos Castelares Superior Tinto is a wine with character 'Freixenista' of the Upper Douro. Aroma to ripe red fruits, spices, violets, and stems, elegant notes of vanilla. Wine very complex and elegant, with fine and firm tannins. 

Try it with red meats, baked goods, and cheeses.
