2015 Quinta do Gradil Maria do Carmo red
Considered the Top of the Range of Quinta do Gradil, this 100% Alicante Bouchet wine, aged 12 months in French oak barrels, revealing aromas of wild berries and a freshness of an Atlantic wine. In the mouth, it presents a balanced acidity, with complex and structured tannins.
The Quinta do Gradil is referenced in the history of Portuguese wines since 1492. However, it was only in the 17th century that vines and wine became part of the estate's economic activity. But it was in the 19th century that one of the most decisive moments happened, when Dona Maria do Carmo Romeiro da Fonseca inherited Quinta do Gradil from her father, turning it into a reference agricultural business, focusing on wine production. Several years have passed and Quinta do Gradil continues to be a Portuguese reference in the world, and is now led by Luís Vieira.
