Overall, the 2020 vintage was an excellent year for Niepoort’s red wines, which have a full-bodied flavor, deep color, and firm tannins. After arriving at Quinta de Nápoles, the grapes were carefully destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures for about a week. A portion of the wine was aged in French oak barriques, while the remainder was aged in stainless steel for around 6 months.
Tasting Notes
The wine has a lovely, vivid color that reveals violet tones when swirled. Floral scents blend with red berry notes and a slight minty character to give the wine richness and freshness. With considerable acidity, the palate is incredibly round and delicate. This is a straightforward red wine from the Douro Valley. An delicate, crisp, and easy-drinking expression of the terroir that showcases its origins and richness of grape varietals.
Food Pairing
This wine is perfect for an everyday drink accompanying easy to cook and delightful meals like white meats, pasta and vegetarian dishes
