Uivo Curtido 2020
Folias de Baco

+

Intensely yellow in color with equally intense aromas of floral, lychee, and citrus. 2 weeks spent on the skins, 20% de-stemmed, and then pressed. Medium-bodied on the palate with a long finish and light tannin.

Tasting Notes: Complex and intriguing with great structure to pair with intense cuisine.

Pairing Suggestions: Seafood, Grilled Chicken, Sushi

Douro, Portugal

Type: Orange, White | Vintage: 2020 | Sulfur: Minimal | Varietal: Moscatel Galego | Alcohol: 10.5% | Production: Organic | Style: Food

Tiago Sampaio is the innovative young winemaker of Folias de Baco, a project started in 2007 that one could say was spearheaded in his childhood piggybacking on his grandfather through the farms and vineyards, always curious and plucky, willing to experiment at every step of the way. It was this incurable fascination that led him into agricultural studies at Santo Tirso and then five years of university in Vila Real, but it wasn’t until completing an agricultural engineering course that opened the doorway for his PhD studies in Oregon for Viticulture and Enology. It was here that Tiago picked up on modern philosophies and aesthetics of winemaking, while never forgetting his roots in the Douro and returning to create his estate that has garnered much attention since. Specifically located in the Alto Douro, in the sub-region of Cima-Corgo – where the land is rough, tough and challenging – you will find his vines clinging to the slopes of schist and granite at an altitude between 500-700m. Tiago is essentially bridging the traditions of his homeland with learned modern aesthetics, creating field blends of both red, white and mixed from indigenous varietals planted some 80 years ago, while carefully attending to his new fixation of Pinot Noir vines that he makes both red and rosé. Tiago has set his sights higher, pushing the boundaries of his curiosity and what some might not expect out of such a traditional region. - Savio Soares Selections
