Folias de Baco Uivo Renegado Vinho Tinto Vinhas Velhas 2018 (750ml)

This is a field blend of more than 25 traditional varieties (whites and reds mixed approximately 50% reds to whites.
These vines are over 80 years old and hand harvested in September. Aging takes place in French oak, 2-3 years old, 225L (50%), stainless steel (50%) for a period of six months. Fermentation time is three weeks. Some parts of the vineyard are seeded with a legume blend to fertilize the soil in nitrogen.

Tiago Sampaio is the innovative young winemaker of Folias de Baco, a project started in 2007 that one could say was spearheaded in his childhood piggybacking on his grandfather through the farms and vineyards, always curious and plucky, willing to experiment at every step of the way. It was this incurable fascination that led him into agricultural studies at Santo Tirso and then five years of university in Vila Real, but it wasn’t until completing an agricultural engineering course that opened the doorway for his PhD studies in Oregon for Viticulture and Enology. It was here that Tiago picked up on modern philosophies and aesthetics of winemaking, while never forgetting his roots in the Douro and returning to create his estate that has garnered much attention since. Specifically located in the Alto Douro, in the sub-region of Cima-Corgo – where the land is rough, tough and challenging – you will find his vines clinging to the slopes of schist and granite at an altitude between 500-700m. Tiago is essentially bridging the traditions of his homeland with learned modern aesthetics, creating field blends of both red, white and mixed from indigenous varietals planted some 80 years ago
