Dominó Salão Frio 2017

Region: Alentejo

Producer: Vitor Claro

Domino comes from an 85-year-old vineyard known as Salão Frio. Only about 1,000 bottles of the 2015 vintage were produced. The wine stands out for its elegance, low alcohol and lots of character.Vitor thus brings a whole new dimension to a region that mainly produces very ripe, rather heavy wines. The high altitude of his vineyard in the mountains in the north of Alentejo helps him in this respect as the grapes retain more freshness there.
Vitor Claro started his career as a chef and until recently had his own restaurant in Lisboa. This is how he came into contact with wine and became particularly charmed by the finesse of Burgundy. In 2010, he discovered some old vineyards in northern Alentejo and started making his own wine.
