The estate has 120ha over the Douro river, along 1.5 km on the right bank, in the heart of the Douro (subregion of Cima Corgo). Of these, 85ha are planted with carefully maintained vines, all letter A, framed in the wonderful and unique UNESCO landscape.
In the terroir of Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo, an unusually beautiful property, the soil is composed of greywachian schist, where it is still possible to see vines planted in terraces, at 2 trellis levels or to better follow the contour lines, vines planted on high.
The terroir includes inclinations over 45º and reaches a maximum altitude of 297m. The average number of planted vines is 3.500 vines per hectare resulting in average productions of 4000 kilos per hectare. The low humidity in the area produce highly concentrated grapes both in sugar content and in colour.
The vineyards, with an integrated production system, are planted facing south and west, and are subject to the hottest and driest winds which means faster maturations and improved quality of the must. The Mediterranean micro climate translates into very hot summers and very cold and rainy winters, with annual average rainfall around 400mm, creating very concentrated, different and textured wines, as only this region can offer.
This wine goes especially well with Parmesan cheese and cured cheeses, and would also accompanies well a Foie.

An excellent choice for a number of options, salads, light meals, seafood, shell food and as an aperitif!
This great red wine will be the perfect match for red meat dishes with and tasty sauces, cured cheeses, foie, and rich stews.
