Winery: Casa Santos Lima
Grapes: Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet
Winemaking/Vinification: The grapes, previously destemmed, went through a pre-fermentative maceration at low temperatures for 24 hours. The fermentation occurred in 10,000 litre vats with temperature control, not exceeding 28ºC. After the fermentation the wine stayed in a prolonged maceration (cuvaison) for 15 days
Ageing: The wine aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels.
Aroma: Extremely rich aroma with predominance of red ripe fruits and some floral notes, well integrated with notes of spices coming from the ageing in French and American oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: With an intense rubi colour, this wine presents itself with a great concentration in the nose. In the mouth it shows great complexity with notes of plums and blackberries. The finish is rich and elegant.
Food pairing: Burgers, picanha, Italian tagliatta and pasta dishes.
