Alcohol Content (%)
A deep ruby colour. An aroma of good 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, has good volume, smooth yet firm tannins, a balanced acidity, notes of black fruit, a slight florality and a long finish.
This wine pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, such as roasted kid or grilled mature meat. It is also the ideal accompaniment to game or slightly fatty roasted fish.
EXCELLENCE, NOBILITY AND TRADITION
Under Dona Antónia, who was twice widowed, finding herself in charge of a large company, she consolidated admirably. Her entrepreneurial spirit taught her to predict, decide, create, teach and love, making her a hugely prominent, charismatic figure.
With the death of Dona Antonia, the business became a limited company and began a new stage of adapting to market developments, while remaining rooted in the quality obtained through the unique heritage of its Douro estates, supported by the best œnological methods, to produce excellent wines under one strong brand.
These values carried Casa Ferreirinha all the way to the present day and were crucial to creating and continuing this brand’s great wines as well as constituting a unique heritage and an unparalleled historical archive. Thorough knowledge of the Douro Superior, the features of its climate and soil and carefully selecting the varieties to be used also came to be crucial to the company's strategy. This strategy, backed by 250 years of experience in the Douro Region, in 1978 led Casa Ferreirinha to acquire Quinta da Leda, located at Almendra, Vila Nova de Foz Coa, with its very modern winery which was to be completed by Sogrape Vinhos in 2001.
The grapes of these vineyards, of a quality surpassing the most optimistic expectations, processed using the expertise of a team led by winemaker Luís Sottomayor, provided the basis for Casa Ferreirinha's premium wines, including the renowned Barca Velha and Reserva Especial, and also Quinta da Leda and Callabriga.
This solid framework has allowed Casa Ferreirinha to extend its portfolio to various market segments. Vinha Grande and Esteva, two benchmarks in their own categories, are also marketed under the brand's auspices.
