Tasting Notes

Deep ruby color. Woodland fruit aroma, eucalyptus leaf, pine and prunes. Solid, with great structure, but with the typical balance and elegance of the Gaivasas. Great complexity and with many good years ahead.

The producer

Wine production is a family tradition for Domingos Alves de Sousa: his father (Edmundo Alves de Sousa) and grandfather (Domingos Alves de Sousa) had already been Douro winemakers. But Domingos Alves de Sousa at first embraced another career. Having graduated in Civil Engineering, however, he did not resist the double appeal (of land and blood), and left his activity in 1987 to dedicate himself exclusively to the exploitation of his inherited farms and to others he later acquired, in which it has been carrying out a model work of land reparcelling and restructuring.
