The majesty of Serra da Estrela, the immensity of the forests, and the coldness and hardness of the granite make this wine reveal its soul as the perfect example of the elegance and richness of the Dão region.
According to winemaker Beatriz Cabral de Almeida, responsible for Quinta dos Carvalhais wines, this new Único "reflects the winemaking and winegrowing teams’ decades of dedication and know-how of this region. This red is faithful to the personality of the Dão region, which perfectly expresses the terroir of Quinta dos Carvalhais in colour and aromas."
Marked by balsamic notes - of sous-bois, menthol, lavender and pine forest, due to the strong influence of the landscape surrounding the Carvalhais vineyards, ÚNICO 2017 is a red that invites us to enjoy it with an elegance and freshness that gives it versatility.
Quinta dos Carvalhais combines ancient knowledge with innovation to create exquisite wines with intense, delicate flavours and the unique personality of the Dão region. This limited edition of 3,136 bottles means ÚNICO 2017 perpetuates its role as an ambassador for the superior quality of the region's wines, confirming its full potential and the emergence of a 'new Dão'.
