Being the most cultivated grape varietal in the south of Portugal, Castelão possesses a great ability to adapt to various different climate conditions, hence providing it a notable versatility.
The Castelão grape is known in the Setúbal Peninsula region as "Periquita", first planted back in 1830.
With an area occupying around sixty-percent of the total vineyard land in the Setúbal Peninsula, the fame of the wines produced with the grapes from the Cova da Periquita vineyard became widespread throughout the region.
Castelão is very well-adapted to the Setúbal Peninsula and it is here where it manifests itself in all its fullness, especially within the sandy soils and old vineyards of the region, producing wines that are more structured, fleshy and intense.
The wines made with Castelão present strong, fruity aromas of cherry, currant, blackberry, raspberry and candied plum, as well as some nutty notes, which harmonize well with an aging stage in oak barrels. In general, Castelão wines exhibit excellent aging ability.
