GOBLET - produced in the region of Trás-os-Montes, in the sub-region of the Planalto Mirandês, pays homage to the roman vitiviculture legacy, present in the various mills carved in rock, existing since roman (or pre-roman) times.
This region, with its own characteristics, is marked by the accentuated relief of mountain ranges and river basins that cross it. It presents a large patch of old vines, with several centuries-old grape varieties, molding the quality of its wines in a unique and peculiar way.
In the Planalto Mirandês it is the Douro river that influences the cultivation of the vineyard. The soils are essentially schist and the altitude ranges from 350 to 600m, with great thermal amplitudes, low levels of relative humidity and high frequency of winds. Such characteristics, associated with the traditional way of conducting vines in bowls/(Goblet), allow greater control of the vines, inhibiting the development of certain diseases and thus allowing a virtually biological viticulture.
Due to the hot summers in this area, the red wines are relatively ripe, full of tannins, and in need of prolonged aging. Whites, on the other hand, given the proximity of the Douro river, turn out to be acidic, fresh, citrus and mineral.
