Perfect Drinking Temperature: room temperature
Grapes: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional.
In parallel to Bastardo, Legítimo offers an alternative to the vast clientele that was disappointed every year with the early sell out of a wine that gained faithful followers over time. Legítimo uses the traditional varieties from the Douro but looks for the same seductive appeal of the Bastardo, a spicy lightness that make it soft, fresh and desirable. Made with minimal intervention, it looks for a natural style, stripped-down and straightforward.
Winemaking: Organic, Grapes are hand-picked and then transported to the cellar in 20kg boxes. The whole bunches are placed in stainless steel tanks, where they ferment with autochthonous yeasts and minimal intervention. 18 months in stainless steel tanks.--
CONCEITO - The winemaker of Conceito Legitimo Tinto
Besides Legitimo Tinto see all CONCEITO wines.
Conceito Vinhos Douro Portugal: "When you taste a Conceito wine, you can taste its essence - our love for nature; respect for climate and soil’s characteristics and the ambition to do the best with what our land can produce.
The subtle flavours hide the wisdom of balancing experimentalism and tradition; respecting the old vines; trusting the longevity of the wines and looking for a refreshing profile that feels like drinking, not only tasting.
Our wines have soul because they are authentic, but also because they carry the consistency of a winemaking project which involves local communities, in a partnership with shepherds and farmers, stimulating natural and organic production in the region.
Our core has remained: precision, sobriety, elegance, respect for nature and its cycles. Light but deep wines. Appealing but long lasting. Restrained; sober, yet, rewarding and sophisticated." - Conceito Vinhos
