The goal is to launch a wine that accompanies and justifies the growing image of excellence of Alentejo products.
Alicante Bouschet is a grape with a long history, losing popularity in the 20th Century but is now enjoying a come back with many producers planting it widely in France, Spain and Portugal. Intense aromas of dark fruits, plums and prunes with a slight floral hint. Silky tannins with a long, rich finish of chocolate and vanilla. This is a great wine for lovers of big reds like Zinfandel, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon!
