VERTENTE RED

Vertente is an appealing wine, with fruit and concentration, two main characteristic of the Douro wines, but also elegant, which is a mark of Niepoort wines. The grapes for Vertente came from, 20 years old vineyards of Quinta de Nápoles in the Tedo Valley, and from Pinhão Valley’s old vineyards. It is a dense wine, complex and fresh, pleasant to drink right away, but with great potential for ageing and improving with time.


TASTING NOTES

Deep colour. Red and black fruit aromas, spicy with dark and green pepper notes and very mineral.


On the palate is balanced and appealing, showing elegant fruit with great freshness. The tannins are smooth but present with great intensity and persistence. A wine with character to drink right away or over the next few years
