About

90

Grown in the hills north of Douro, this wine would likely be considerably more expensive if it were from a fancier neighborhood. As it stands, it’s pretty chic—silky in its texture, sunny in its flavors. Its red fruit tastes of crushed strawberries while a cool, earthy tone of rocks and minerals infuses that fruit, lending it depth and persistence. Grab a case to drink this winter; the wine should really begin to open by spring.

Product Description:

A GREAT NEW WINE TO TRY. Mont'Alegre Clássico red wine has an intense aroma expressing the persistent character of red matured fruit. The ageing at altitude allows it to naturally intensify the robust but elegant character of the wines of Trás-os-Montes, giving them density and longevity whether in the mouth or bottle.
