The wine region of Colares, integrated in the Lisbon Wine Region, a little further from Lisbon than its neighbor and competitor, the also very noble region of Carcavelos, is limited to the West by the Atlantic Ocean and to the South by the Serra de Sintra , the Colares Demarcated Region comprises the parishes of Colares, São João das Lampas and São Martinho, from the Municipality of Sintra, being a Controlled Denomination of Origin since 1908, the westernmost Demarcated region of Continental Europe and the smallest region producing still wines from Portugal.
This 1969 Adega Viúva Gomes Red Wine is a monovarietal of the Ramisco grape variety, indigenous to the demarcated region, from free standing vines planted in the sandy soils of Colares. Old crops, carefully kept in the "widow" of the Widow, which over time took on an onion skin tone. Aromatic notes of moist earth and raisin cherry, while maintaining a pleasant freshness and lively tannins.
The Red Wine Adega Viúva Gomes 1969 is vinified using a fermentation in a winery, followed by an aging in vats, exotic woods, with the use of a 100% Portuguese natural cork stopper that was changed in 2000, being a wine with an important and 20-year aging potential (check the stopper during aging).
