The Quinta das Setencostas Alenquer DOC by Casa Santos Lima sparkles in a beautiful Bordeaux red in the glass. This fine red wine cuvée from Castelao, Camarate, Tinta Miuda and Preto Martinho convinces the connoisseur with an exciting aroma of forest soil, wild berries and ripe plums.
Balsamic notes such as mint and eucalyptus combine on the palate of the quinta the Setencostas Tinto with fruity nuances of wild berries and dark cherries. A trace of liquorice is noticeable in the reverberation.
Vinification of Quinta das Setencostas Alenquer DOCThe
namesake Quinta da Boavista of Casa Santos Lima is located in the middle of the hills of the Lisboa wine-growing region, today Alenquer. The proximity to the Atlantic not only brings the vines humidity and cooling wind, but also harmonizes the temperatures in summer. The soil here consists of sandy clay, interspersed with sandstone and limestone deposits of the primeval sea, which once had its reason here. Here José Luis Oliveira da Silva, once a banker, but a long-standing passionate winemaker, creates his quinta Setencostas - the wine of the seven hills. This classic of the winery from Castelão, Camarate, Tinta Miuda and Preto-Martinho is vinified. After the mash fermentation, the wine matures for a few months in barriques and thus, in addition to the fruit, still receives fine oak wood nuances.
