Tasting Note

The wine has a deep, almost opaque red colour and a nose of violets, cassis and black cherries. On the palate the Xisto is remarkably elegant with a classic balance of fine ripe tannins and intense mouth filling fruit. Although delicious now, Xisto will age well for the next 10 to 15 years.

Winemaker

Xisto is a special selection of the finest grapes from older vines to give a more concentrated, expressive and ageworthy wine.

Winemaking

The winemaking is undeniably French in its inspiration, with higher fermentation temperatures to maximise extraction, and exclusive use of French oak barriques in which the wine is aged for 20 months. The wine combines the unique spicy character of the Douro with the finesse of a Cru Classé Bordeaux – a truly sublime combination.

Food Recommendation

Rich, earthy intense Douro reds demand a rich, earthy meat. In certain times of the year, there’s nothing better than local caça (game meat), such as veado (venison) and javali (wild boar). The Portuguese enjoy making roasts and stews out of game meats. Additionally, any roasted or stewed beef (lombo de vaca assada/estufada) is a nice pairing.
