The grapes for ‘Vertente’, Tinta Amarela, Touriga Franca, Rufete and others come from the slopes of the Pinhão and Tedo rivers, both Douro tributes. The grape blend includes several varieties, where Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz are predominant. Vertente is a fresh and elegant wine. Its freshness and youth come from the 20 year old vineyards of Quinta de Nápoles and its elegance from the old vineyards of Pinhão valley. This wine is very gastronomic and although it’s produced to be drunk young, has a very good ageing potential. After a careful selection in the vineyards and winery, the grapes were fermented, in stainless steel vats, then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
