Winemaker António Maçanita traveled the world learning how to make wine before heading back to his homeland to plant his winemaking roots, per se. Vai Nua translates to ‘goes naked’ in which there is no oak used to make this wine sourced from sustainably grown wines. The wine does see partial carbonic maceration, leaving it with a fresh, slight delightful spritz that makes this wine perfect for those who still like to drink red wine in the summer. Malbec lovers take note of this as an alternative selection.
