PremiumFragmented red and white: Cima-Corgo granitic fragments

The idea was “to create a top of the range product that better reflected the concentration of our centennial vineyards” - this is how the winemaker Luís Leocádio synthesizes the motivation to produce and launch Fragmentado wines, produced by the Titan of Douro producer.

The idea was “to create a top of the range product that better reflected the concentration of our centennial vineyards” - this is how the winemaker Luís Leocádio synthesizes the motivation to produce and launch Fragmentado wines, produced by the Titan of Douro producer.

For these two wines, Fragmentado red and white, we used the 'help' of 30 grape varieties identified: 17 red and 13 white. Therefore, we can speak, not of one, but of two true tops of the range.

The grapes were produced in plots of centenary vines, planted at an altitude between 750 and 850 meters, with a transition soil between shale and granite. Poor and rugged, but it shows surprising acidity in the wines under appreciation. They belong to a Douro apart from the rest: far from the homonymous river, from the schist and from the low quotas. Before, a Douro facing the river Távora, at altitude, at the confluence with the smallest demarcated wine area in Portugal, that of Távora-Varosa - to which we will return here soon. In the sub-region of Cima-Corgo. With granite floors.
