Limoncello is a lemon liqueur originally produced in southern Italy, especially in the Gulf of Naples, the Amalfi Coast and the islands of Ischia and Capri, but it is also produced in Sicily and Sardinia. It is made with lemon, alcohol, water and sugar; it must be kept in the freezer and, consequently, drunk very cold.
TASTING NOTES Ruby color. Aroma of good intensity, with notes of red fruits, such as strawberry and cherry, floral, violet and rock rose, slightly balsamic, resin, cedar and tobacco box. In the mouth it has a smooth attack, tannins present but well polished, well matched acidity and a good harmony finish.
Ladredo is the name of a little old vineyard, aged about 50 years, facing east and perched precipitously over the River Sil. It has such a steep slope that the grape harvest is a near Herculean task. This vineyard has two co-existing varieties: Mencía (called Jaen in Portugal) and Alicante Bouschet. They account for 65% and 35%, respectively, of the batch.
The Conciso is our interpretation of a fine and elegant Dão wine which shows off the potential and the character of a very old vineyard.
