Winemaking:
2010 is the first edition of this wine made entirely with grapes from our own vineyards at Quinta de Nápoles where we practice organic viticulture, currently undergoing the process of certification. Made with our younger vineyards, with 20 years old, the idea was to have less intervention during the winemaking process. The ageing process was made in old wooden big containers recovered from port wine wood. The goal was to make a pure wine without the oak character, but with elegant and firm tannins. 2010 was uncommonly wet during winter and early spring, with heavy rains during these months. As a consequence the yields were high and we had to deal with a strong disease pressure on the vineyard. The maturation period was very hot and dry, but fortunately, light rain in the first days of September helped, especially on the older and high altitude vineyards, contributing to a balanced maturation process. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats with total maceration up to 12 days, with 20% of stems. The ageing and malolactic fermentation was made in 5000 L and 2000 L old wood casks, for 12 months.

Grape Varieties:
Tinta Amarela,Touriga Franca,Tinta Roriz,Sousão,Touriga Nacional

Tasting Notes:
Bioma has a dark ruby colour. The aroma is full of character with wild berry fruit aromas and dark plum and cherry notes, together with fresh herbaceous notes. Strong mineral character with wet stone aromas. The palate is firm, supported by a good acidity and great tannic structure. Very fresh with pure fruit flavor and mineral earthy notes. Very long and persistent aftertaste
