In the heart of the Douro region, a few miles from the historical centre of Régua, Quinta do Vallado spreads along both banks of the Corgo River, right where it meets the Douro. With references dating back to 1716, the Quinta belonged to the legendary D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira and has remained in the family ever since. It is now in its sixth generation. Douro red has wonderfully concentrated aromas, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and “esteva” (a local Portuguese resinous bush). With a great structure, full bodied, matured round tannins, and a long persistent finish, this is a red to try. Pair with traditional portuguese cuisine and make a real night of it! 

The grapes, from both the younger vineyards (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Sousão - 80%) and older vineyards (over 70 years old - 20%), were fermented in 10 and 5 ton stainless steel tanks for a week. All wines were fermented under controlled temperature varying between 25º and 27ºC. The finest of the press wine, from a traditional basket press, was also used for ageing for the final blend.

Concentrated, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese resinous bush). Good structure with matured round tannins and a long persistent finish.
