Producer: Casa Ferreirinha
Casa Ferreirinha, founded in 1952, is named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira. She was affectionately nicknamed 'Ferreirinha' by her countrymen, and Casa Ferreirinha, the first producer in the region dedicated to making light wines, pays homage to her memory. Purchased by Sogrape in 1987, it has 520 hectares of vineyard in all three of the Douro sub-regions: Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo, and Douro Superior. The winemaking is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a vibrant freshness allied to a lovely depth and texture.
Tasting Notes: Quinta da Leda is deep ruby-red in color. Its aroma is intense and complex, dominated by red and black fruits balsamic, resin and cedar. There are also fresh menta notes, spiced with pepper, cacao chocolate, perfectly integrated with subtle oak of excellent quality. It has an excellent volume in the mouth, a notable acidity, very good tannins, well-knit flavors of red and black fruits, and a slight note of bush. The finish is very long and harmonious.
