Xis Douro 2020

DOURO 2019

El3mento is a partnership between Luís Pedro Cândido da Silva and Carmelo Peña Santana. Since university that the plan was one day to make wine together, so after 5 years of thinking and sharing ideas, in 2017 El3mento was born in Douro. The choice was a specific vineyard, a centenary one, field blend at 600 meters high in Barcos – Tabuaço. A spontaneous fermentation in Amphora, whole bunch, light foot tread with no temperature control and macerated for 4 months – work in the limit of volatility with low levels of sulfur dioxide was always an idea, that’s an high risk that was taken and due to that the El3mento wine is not released every year.
