Callabriga

Casa Ferreirinha Callabriga

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in color. A strong aromatic intensity, with notes of black fruits, such as prunes and sour cherries, as well as cocoa and chocolate courtesy of a good maturation. Balsamic aromas of resin and menthol are also prominent, alongside a well-integrated wood element that bestows great complexity. On the palate, there is a nice weight, smooth yet firm tannins, a balanced acidity, notes of black fruit, a slight florality and a long finish.

Varieties

55% Touriga Franca, 30% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz

Technical Notes

Vinified utilizing state-of-the-art technology using grapes from selected plots at the Quinta da Leda. After destemming and soft crushing, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where they undergo alcoholic fermentation. During this phase, gentle maceration takes place at controlled temperatures, in order to extract the inherent characteristics that contribute to the color, aroma and flavor of this wine. The wine is aged in used French oak (75%) and used American oak barrels for a period of roughly 12 months. During this time, the final blend underwent numerous tests and analysis. In order to preserve the highest possible quality, this wine was only subjected to filtration prior to bottling.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, such as grilled mature meat. It is also the ideal accompaniment to game or slightly fatty roasted fish.
