Producer: Pico Wines
Grapes: Arinto dos Acores, Terrantez do Pico, Verdelho
Tasting notes: Frei Gigante is a white blend crafted from Arinto dos Açores, Verdelho, and Terrantez do Pico grapes, paying homage to Friar Pedro Gigante, who introduced vines to Pico in the 15th century. Fermented separately in stainless steel vats and aged on lees, it presents a pronounced acidity and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, accompanied by subtle hints of seaweed. The wine offers a balanced mouthfeel with a saline finish, showcasing the influence of the volcanic environment. A true reflection of Azorean heritage, Frei Gigante is a testament to the island’s unique terroir and historical significance.
