Description

This wine is deep ruby red in colour, with an intense aromas of balsamic, truffle, forest-floor and pine needles, along with notes of black pepper, asparagus and well-integrated oak. On the palate, it has firm tannins, a lively acidity, spicy notes of black pepper and a touch of saltiness on the long finish.

This producer, founded in 1952, is named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira. She was affectionately nicknamed ‘Ferreirinha’ by her countrymen, and Casa Ferreirinha, the first producer in the region dedicated to making light wines, pays homage to her memory. Purchased by Sogrape in 1987, it has 520 hectares of vineyard in the Douro in all of its three sub-regions: Lower Corgo, Upper Corgo and Douro Superior. The winemaking is headed up by Luís Sottomayor.
