Description

With the acquisition of Quinta de Baixo in 2012, it became possible to recreate the Lagar de Baixo brand, moving towards a classically-styled wine which highlights the nobility of the Baga grape. Lagar de Baixo Tinto is complex, serious, but with some youth and grip. It is the most classic wine from Quinta de Baixo and the wine which best reflects the Bairrada terroir. It is fermented in lagares and aged in used barrels.

Tasting Notes

Light ruby colour, aromas of cherries and blackberries as well as subtle vegetal notes reminiscent of grape stems. It is a delicate but deeply expressive, with fresh and mouth-watering fruitiness. The palate is grippy, with noticeable and slightly earthy tannins which are typical of the Baga variety. The long maturation period in the vats provides plenty of precision and a compact structure and excellent balance.
