The red Monte is pressed from the younger vines of the Quinta. Hand harvested and hand sorted on conveyor belts. Fermented in steel tanks. Matured for 12 months in used french oak barrels. Unfined (no animal based proteins).
Dark ruby red. Intense and fresh in the bouquet, a mix of fruit and flowers with a hint of toasted oak. Juicy and refreshing, soft and pleasant in structure with a little backbone of tannins to hold the wine together.
