Assobio Red 2014

At the edge of Quinta dos Murças’ boundaries, we find a valley formed by steep slopes. In this place, primarily north-facing and more protected from the sun, when the wind blows, we can hear it whistle.
Assobio comes from vineyards such as these, from plots boasting unique characteristics and planted at higher altitudes. The product of the region’s most traditional grape varieties.

Tasting Notes Fresh and intense with dominant red fruit. Well-integrated tannins and good acidity provide a long, elegant and fresh finish.
Vinification/Maturation Grapes hand-picked, bunch selected, destemming, crushing, pre-fermentation cold maceration, fermentation with temperature control (Max 25ºC), membrane pressing. Around 20% of the blend aged in 3rd and 4th year French oak casks for 6 months.
