A brilliant ruby red in colour. The bouquet shows aromas of black blackberries, blueberries, eucalyptus and toast. Seductive notes that jumps out of the glass. The palate shows fruit and spice with a pleasant concentration, fine tannins that continue in a remarkably fresh finish. The Douro Red from Conceito is distinguished by its perfect balance between freshness and concentration.

At Conceito we are time and distance. Time comes from the forties, when the family vineyards started. Distance is not shorter; the Douro Superior has always been far from everything. When you taste a Conceito wine, you can taste its essence – our love for nature; respect for climate and soil’s characteristics and the ambition to do the best with what our land can produce. Rita is the face of Conceito. Rita is the soul of Conceito. Rita was the bridge that allowed the family owned company, led by her mother Carla Ferreira, to combine History with the ambition to create news brands, such as Rita combines youth with wisdom and technical know-how with intuition. The subtle flavours hide the wisdom of balancing experimentalism and tradition; respecting the old vines; trusting the longevity of the wines and looking for a refreshing profile that feels like drinking, not only tasting. Authenticity represents our believe that striking wines can come out of this exceptional terroir, that surpass geographical and bureaucratic frontiers, and are visiting cards from our little corner in the Douro Valley to the whole world...
