Pequeno João

Red Wine

The Pequeno João is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, dark colored almost opaque. The nose is very complex with notes of dark fruits, earthy, slightly vegetal, graphite and oak. Elegant and fresh on the palate with firm but ripe tannins. Finishes long and balsamic. Great aging potential.

Vinification

Grapes were hand picked into 12 Kg boxes and selected at the sorting table. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel lagares with temperature control and traditional maceration. Aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels.
