La vera esperienza è bere Porto Vintage in gioventù, quando il carattere, l'intensità, l'acidità, il frutto arrivano in bocca come un tornado, rompendo tutto, con aggressività da teenager. E allora ecco il succo dell'uva, la frutta viva, l'alloro, foglia di menta. Poi radice e liquirizia.
Spezzare gli schemi è abbinare questo grande vino rosso con u potenziale infinito a una carne estremamente frollata.
Niepoort has been an independent family business for over a century and a half; five generations have succeeded Niepoort since Franciscus Marius Niepoort founded the company in 1842. Almost always, two generations have worked side by side for many years, contributing to a successful transition. In this moment, you look enthusiastically at the sixth generation in the future.
Niepoort's mission is to maintain his position of "niche player", giving continuity to the production of Porto wines and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation.
The importance that is attributed to the need to interpret the varieties of the land, the climate and grapes have opened the way of biodynamics, a dating looking for a respect for "moods" of nature, listening to them to find the balance between biodiversity and less invasive intervention possible.
"Can we do better?" Maria Alice was once asked to Quinta de Baixo. "It always depends on the fact that Niepoort continues to realize dreams, from the creation of the right processes and from the maintaining the willingness to learn that characterizes us. But above all, the answer lies in the pleasure we have in what let's make."
