Company

 

Douro Prime was founded in July 2008. Originally founded by Alexandra Martins, Manuel Matos de Carvalho, Miguel Côrte-Real and Mariz family, vineyard owners in Douro Superior for some generations. In May 2015 the company was restructured, remaining property of Mariz family and Manuel Matos de Carvalho, responsible for Enology direction.

 

Tranquilo

 

Douro Prime's white wines are produced from a vineyard planted in 2010, in Linhares de Ansiães, located at a 500m altitude, with a transitional soil between shale and granite, on a terrain slightly inclined to Ribeira de Linhares, with exposure to the South. The varieties Viosinho, Gouveio e Arinto constitute the "blend" that marks Tranquilo as a fresh and fruity wine. The vinification is made in stainless steel vats, with temperature control, and the resulting wine is intended to be fresh and vibrant, with great aromatic concentration and a great balance and subtlety, ending with a long and fruity finish but always fresh due to its excellent natural acidity.

 

Inquieto

 

The red wines of the brand Inquieto are produced from old vineyards of Quinta da Alegria, in Douro Superior(Upper Douro), complemented with grapes from small producers located in the periphery. These properties are located on the north bank of the Douro river, all of them between 300m and 400m high, classified qualitatively as A-quality vineyards, according to the Moreira da Fonseca method.

Inquieto Reserva and Inquieto Reserva Touriga Nacional are Douro reds polished by time. Civilized. Not excessive or agressive. Very pleasant in the mouth. With notorious but fine and delicate tannins. Satiny wines. Persistent. Round and full. Almost smooth. Attractive aromas, with good complexity, where they marry discrete notes of wood with clean leather and delicious red fruits. Perfect for the table and for a second glass. Douro red wines not only for meat and cheese, but with a softness perfectly suited to accompany also a good roasted fish.

Inquieto Reserva Touriga Nacional is made with 100% Touriga Nacional grapes. Inquieto Reserva is a blend of Touriga Nacional(45%), Touriga Franca(45%) and Sousão(10%).

The winemaking process is made in stone wineries, with an automatized system of mechanical steps.
