Casa Ferreirinha AAF Antónia Adelaide Ferreira Red is a complex and elegant limited edition wine of superior quality that is produced in homage to Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira.
Vinified at the Quinta de Leda winery from selected batches of grapes from the Leda, Seixo, Caêdo, Sairrão and Porto estates using state-of-the-art technology. The grapes are vinified by grape variety or in lots chosen in the vineyard. After soft-crushing and total destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation takes place. A long, gentle maceration follows at a controlled temperature.
Ruby colour. Very intense and complex aroma, with very evident hints of spices, slight balsamic notes of resin, fresh red fruits and discreet and well integrated wood. Good volume and well integrated acidity in the mouth. The notes of red fruits and spices stand out, especially the pepper. Tannins are well present, but rounded and smooth. The finish is very elegant, persistent and of great harmony.
