Sangue Real comes from the name of a land parcel of Quinta dos Arcos, located in Azeitão, Península de Setúbal between the Atlantic Ocean and the Arrábida National Part. The vineyard is part of a landscape of oak cork trees and olive trees crossed by a river. 

The grape is exclusively to Quinta dos Arcos, without herbicide and harvested manually. 

This wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon which have adapted very well to the terroir. 

VINIFICATION

The control of maturation of the grapes was made to define the desired state of maturation. The manually harvested grape was destemmed and crushed. The fermentation occurred in stainless steel press with automatic treading with controlled temperature at 24ºC for two weeks, then was pressed. After malolactic fermentation, the wine aged in stainless steel for 22 months until it was bottled.

TASTING NOTES 

The resulting wine has a bright & intense ruby colour, with aromas of violets & black fruits such as currants & black cherries. It has a long finish, due to its fine tannins.

FOOD PAIRINGS 

It pairs well with all types of red meats, as well as roasted pork loin, pasta with tomato sauce, vegetables such as peppers or stuffed eggplants, sautéed mushrooms, beans or lentils. It can also be consumed as an aperitif or accompany cheeses such as brie, Camembert, or the famous cheese of Azeitão or the cheeses of the Serra da Estrela.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

The recommended serving temperature is between 15-18 ºC.
