Aragonêz, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon
It presents an intense colour loaded with deep and complex aromas of black fruits, with toasted almonds, spices and even some tobacco notes. The flavor is rich, soft and elegant. The tannin structure is robust and shows a touch of fruit involved with a strong mineral character typical from Alentejo. The end is very long and persistent showing great potential for aging.
