Farmer, winegrower, winemaker, wine producer and commercial, Tiago Sampaio a one man show responsible for the creation of Folias de Baco and all its aromas and tastes. It carries with it the taste and the dream of one day being able to turn into reality what he learned and aspired from a young age.
From 2 hectares of 17 year old vines planted on schist and granite soils, the grapes are hand-harvested in September, undergo vineyard sorting and whole cluster pressing with no time on skins.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel (10000L) with wild yeasts for roughly three weeks under temperature control. Bottled after first fermentation. Disgorged February Vintage_2019; no dosage. Not fined or filtered.
Very pure, with delicate, sappy red fruits; raspberry and sour cherry with a little touch of fresh pepper. In the mouth it is refreshing and crisp, with a strong mineral character, almost salty.
Enjoy by itself as an aperitif or pair with delicate fish such as sole or turbot.
