For decades the Amorim family has been the world leader of the cork industry. In 1999 they acquired Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in the Douro Valey. Luisa Amorim, is at the heart and soul of this project, leading a small team mostly comprised of women.

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a unique place that runs along the north bank of the river Douro for just short of one mile. Of its 296 acres, 210 are planted with letter A vines. The Quinta includes a manor house, now a hotel, that dates back to the early 18th century; a baroque chapel; an olive mill and a winery.  Surrounded by the stunning orchards and vineyards, the Quinta deeply reflects the Douro agriculture tradition.

The name Quinta Nova results from the joining of two Quintas (farms). Nossa Senhora do Carmo (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel) is a tribute to its patron Saint.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a strong red color and dark orange hints, this wine presents an intense and mature red fruit aroma, with vanilla and balsamic notes. It shows some volume in mouth; smooth and good fresh flavors, especially from the red and black jammy fruits. The finish is long and very elegant. Ready to drink now or cellar indefinitely. Decanting recommended. Best enjoyed at 60˚F.
Vineyard Notes
Sub-region Cima Corgo; average age 25 years
Production Notes
Grapes selection at the entrance of the cellar. Fermentation with partial stripping in the press under temperature control. Wine is naturally fortified by 20% with grape spirit. This wine results from a blend of several harvests and is stored in stainless steel tanks for four years. Part of the blend stays some months in Port oak vats. Winemakers: Francisco Montenegro and Pedro Pina Cabral
Winemaker Notes
CLÃ is a sub group of people that share the same interests and respect the same heritage within a common ritual (“clan” in English). The atmosphere painted on the bottle expresses a group of friends who are passionate about Port.
