Quinta do Sagrado 2010 LBV PORT

Producer

One of the most emblematic Quintas in the Douro, located near the mouth of the Pinhão River at the heart of the Alto Corgo and the Douro. It has belonged to the Calem family (now in its 5th and 6th generations) for about 150 years, and before that was owned by the A.A. Calem & Filho, Lda. company. When it started, there were neither trains nor tanker-trucks, so it was designed to receive the Port wines produced at the Quinta and at the Region's other landholdings, and from there transport them via barge (known as Barco Rebelo, owned by the Monteiro de Bitetos family at Alpendurada), to the main warehouses on Diogo Leite Avenue in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Vinification

Vinification occurs in stainless steel containers with 1 day of pre-fermentation and maceration and 2 days of fermentation. Collections LBV is made with grapes from a single harvest, presenting excellent body, good vigour and fruitiness. It is aged in wood for 4 to 6 years before being bottled. It follows a traditional vinification process, in granite tanks, and ageing takes place in oak barrels which confer on it a complexity of flavours and a very intense and pleasing bouquet. In order to preserve this wine?s excellent characteristics, the bottling process is the same as that of the vintages, with no prior treatment.

Tasting Notes

This velvet smooth port is perfect to drink now but can also be kept in the bottle and will keep for many years. It is a pleasant surprise to taste the spiciness of this delicious port.
