Quinta do Síbio Arinto
Arinto is one of the best-known white varietals in the Douro yet never used as a single varietal. Famouse for its mineral texture and high acidity, Arinto was always used as a component for blends. At Quinta do Síbio we have discovered that Arinto is a grape we can pick early, on the contrary to previous knowledge, allowing us to explore a more aromatic, elegant and fine Arinto.Download ficha técnica
10ºC – 12ºC
Contrary to past procedures, we chose to harvest Arinto earlier than usual with ambition to reach the full aromatic component. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks followed by an ageing period of 6 months in which 30% of the wine is aged in french oak barriques.
A very a fresh and aromatic Arinto in which intense fruit and floral notes integrate with mineral nuances, typical for Arinto. Very elegant on the palate with great expression, and texture. Finishes with astonishing acidity and great definition.
