Quinta dos Aciprestes Grande Reserva Sousão

A powerful red that assembles all the characteristics of this famed varietal allied to the Quinta dos Aciprestes terroir. This variety has been present in the region for many years but very rarely used as a single varietal wine. We believe this wine will transmit yet another style of Douro as well as our passion to discover the singularities of each grape.

Sousão

BLEND

100% Sousão, in a very special selection from the only parcel of Sousão at Quinta dos Aciprestes. A grape characterized by it’s intense colour and high acidity. Sousão enjoys stainless steel fermentation while ageing occurs in partially new and used french oak barriques.

TASTING NOTES

Reveals the essence of Sousão through a very deep and profound tint colour, typical of this famed variety. Hints of green combine with fine fruit aromas and classic Sousão tertiary notes of spice and coffee grain, offering immense aromatic complexity. Flavourful, yet smooth on the palate, with vivid yet round tannins and finally characterised but a very lively acidity, which again is typical in Sousão.
