The wines take their name from the Carthusian monks, who since 1598 have lived a life of solitude and prayer in the Monastery of Santa Maria Scala Coeli. The reds are a blend of the Alentejo’s most traditional grape varieties: Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alfrocheiro, Periquita, Moreto and Tinta Caiada. Aged in oak, the wines are elegant, with good structure, which combine the aromas of the grape varieties used and give a persistent and complex flavour.
Produced from the varieties, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro and Trincadeira, planted in the vineyards of the Fundação Eugénio de Almeida. When the grapes reach the ideal ripeness, they are harvested and transported to the winery, where the technological process begins with total destemming and light crushing. Then, the grapes are fermented separately, in stainless steel vats, at a temperature of 27ºC, followed by prolonged post-fermentative maceration.
