Tasting notes:

A rich and beautiful wine, grown in a typical hot season in the Alentejo. An intense and fragrant bouquet, full of violet flowers, pepper, red fruit and hints of smoke. Powerful, dense but soft tannins and lots of delicious fruit, creamy texture and sweet extract, beautifully balanced, and an almost endless finish with notes of dark chocolate, smoke and vanilla.

Serve with:

With all kind of meat, pastas or alone.
