Soito Wines, created in 2013, is one of Dão’s youngest and most promising projects. At Quinta do Soito, with an already long wine tradition, two teachers gave wings to the dream of transforming the family farm into a reference producer, with wines of exceptional quality.
The Dão region is located in Beira Alta, in the north of Portugal. The geographical conditions there are excellent for wine production: the Serras do Caramulo, Montemuro, Buçaco and Estrela protect the vineyards from the influence of winds.
The vineyards are planted in the sub region of Terras de Azurara, a place with Mediterranean climate and granitic soils. The vineyard was generous and provided a density of 3500 to 4000 feet per hectare, giving 5 tons of grapes per hectare.
Classic vinification in stainless steel vats with skin maceration. Fermentation with controlled temperature to 28ºC and maceration for 6 days. Wine staged in stainless steels tanks for 24 months.
In the glass, a clear appearance with nuances of red brick. Aromas of ripe red fruits, with a soft mouthfeel and long finish.
This wine should be served at a temperature of 12C to accompany fish, seafood dishes and light white meat.
