Tinto - Classico - Monte da Ravasquiera - Alentejo - Portugal
An exuberant nose, with a Syrah varietal expression. Notes of red fruit, spices, and chocolate. Bulky attack, with minty notes. Elegant to taste, with persistent and silky tannins. Long and harmonious finish. A red wine full of personality, great for Malbec lovers!
Made from the Trincadeira (25%), Aragonez (25%), Syrah (25%), and Alicante Bouschet (25%) varieties, this is a wine with a classic Portuguese character.
Situated about an hour from Lisbon, the excellent geological conditions and the climate are well suited to the production of some of the best wine that the Alentejo has to offer. The estate of Monte da Ravasqueira is just 65 hectares in size – not tiny, but a relatively small holding. Whilst the property is made up of a series of wonderful historical buildings, the estate only produced its first grape vintage 14 years ago.
