Formiga de Vellut is an organic wine and grapes are selected manually. Fermentation for each variety takes place separately at stainless tanks at 22 °C. After maceration wine is blended and placed into oak barrels for 9 months. Wine with intense cherry colour. Well structured, fresh and complex aroma where red and black fruits dominate, well combined with marmalade and balsamic notes. In mouth it is expressive, powerful with velvet and fleshy finish exposing well balanced and fresh tannins.

Formiga de Vellut vintage 2013, won in 2016 Gold Medal at Mundus Vini BioFach.
