Overview of the Wine
Santos & Seixo is a family company owned by two families. Alzira dos Santos and
Pedro Seixo had the dream of pursuing their family inheritance and devoting
themselves wholeheartedly to wine. In 2010 the dream became reality with their first
harvest in Douro and Alentejo, the most emblematic regions in Portugal. Limited
productions from the best grape varieties of each region with a careful aging in French oak barrels. The project has grown and today the family owns properties and produceswines in the Douro, Alentejo and in the Vinho Verde region. In a combination of modern and traditional, our grapes are carefully chosen with a minimum intervention.From the production to the aging in barrels, all the processes are made in order to maintain the authenticity of the grapes.
Viticulture: Vineyards have been managed under the principles of Integrated Production Management, a rigorous and demanding regime, which strives for minimum intervention in the vineyard.
Vinification: Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed directly into the barrels, five days of cold maceration; alcoholic fermentation, and malolactic fermentation in French Oak.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The warm tones of the Alentejo are very evident in this wine with its high proportion of Alicante Bouschet. The grape gives the wine its powerful tannins as well as its juicy black fruits. Structure and fruit go well together here, and the wine is now ready to drink.
