Description

Batuta is a wine of extremes, tannins are very fine, aromas are intense but never exuberant. It has incredible concentration from the old centenarian vineyards, yet it is very fresh and elegant.ÊThe grapes are sourced from north facing 70 yo vineyards at Quinta do Carril, which offer slow and balanced ripening, as well as from centenarian vines near Quinta de Napoles. Batuta is the result of a very delicate vinification process, with long maceration but little extraction, where all the details are carefully considered in order to obtain a complex, fine and elegant wine.

Tasting Notes

Very intense deep color. Complex aromas of black fruit and spices of black and green pepper. Elegant, with mineral and smoked aromas. Very rich on the palate but showing freshness and purity. Subtle, with intense fruit flavours and an impressive acidity. Tannins are perfectly integrated with great persistence towards a long lasting end. Very long ageing potential.
