Vinho Verde Docil Niepoort 2022 Magnum

Tax included

Docil is a Vinho Verde composed of a grape variety particularly common in northern Portugal, Loureiro. Vihno Verde, or Vino Verde, is so called given the verdant landscape in which it is grown, a verdant area thanks to abundant rainfall. It is the largest DOP in Portugal and accounts for 15% of the area's total vineyard area. The Loureiro variety is not the only one that can be used to produce Vinho Verde but it is still the most widespread.

The name Loureiro, however, means "laurel" and refers to the aromatic profile reminiscent of it. It produces fresh wines with pleasant acidity.

The vineyard has an average age of 25 years and is planted on granitic soil. Fermentation is conducted the steel tanks, as is the subsequent aging that lasts 5 months.

Three Senses
Docil is a fresh and elegant wine. With floral and citrus notes, in the mouth it is well balanced, aromatic and with a persistent, mineral finish. Try it with oysters, but also with shellfish or vegetarian cuisine



Niepoort has been an independent family business for over a century and a half; five generations have succeeded Niepoort since Franciscus Marius Niepoort founded the company in 1842. Almost always, two generations have worked side by side for many years, contributing to a successful transition. In this moment, you look enthusiastically at the sixth generation in the future.

Niepoort's mission is to maintain his position of "niche player", giving continuity to the production of Porto wines and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation.

Dirk is the current leader of the family-a role handed down to him from his father, with the challenge to "innovate while preserving good traditions." Dirk's sons Daniel, Marco and Ana are following in their father's footsteps to ensure that the next chapters of the Niepoort story continue to be as fruitful as each vintage.

All the wines that bear the Niepoort seal reflect the bold and deeply rooted spirit of the family. Each glass encapsulates the essence of terroir, a wonder that attracts inquisitive minds and testifies to a deep respect for nature, for the "elders" who, as Dirk acknowledges over and over again, have taught him everything he knows, and for the men and women who practice this challenging profession on a daily basis. Each step in the process is carefully thought out and based on respect for decades of accumulated wisdom along the way. Dirk sums it up well: "The way we make wine is very simple: it requires perfectionism and attention to detail. And that applies to everything in my life."
