Lusovini Palavrar Vinhas Velhas

In the subregion of Cima Corgo we found the balance between the cooler climate of the Baixo Corgo and the extremely hot summers in the Douro Superior. Palavrar is a wine produced in typical granitic Lagares (treading tanks), as we preserve the traditions and resources of the olden days. The maceration during fermentation provides fine tannins and deep color extraction.
