Dão - Silgueiros
Ruby red color, small red fruits and floral jasmine joining in great elegance. Soft and velvety, where the finesse of the tannins are in perfect balance with the acidity.
Alfrocheiro appeared in the Dao region after phylloxera. Its origin is unknown. These vineyards are located in the sub-region of Silgueiros at an altitude between 350-400 meters. The vine is grown within a program of integrated protection. Infestation control is carried out through soil movement. Grape-picking is done by hand, caste by caste, when the ideal point of ripeness is reached, normally between the second fortnight of September and the first fortnight of October. The harvest is collected in small 10kg boxes.
