“The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.” Carl Sagan
It is on the vine that one begins to make wine. “We believe that the simpler the process of making wine, the more easily one can reveal the origins of the wine, of its terroir. With less interference, the final product will be more faithful to the land.” And that’s how is made the Quinta do Monte Xisto wine, vinified in granite lagares with foot treading followed by 18 months of aging in 600 litre barrels at our warehouse in Vila Nova de Gaia. The grape varieties are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Souzão.
Of a glowing and brilliant appearance, the nose reveals its authenticity and transports us into the world of the Quinta. When we allow ourselves to be engaged by the wine, new aromas of fruit and forest surprise us, supported by an elegant and balanced structure. Full of personality, it ends expressively and reflectively.
Tasting a wine is a cultural and social experience, but above all a personal one, as it is determined by our predisposition to be transported by its flavour.
