Three of the Alentejo's most familiar grape varieties—Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez and Trincadeira—go into this warm, rich and southern-feeling wine. It's fine tannins are merged with black fruits and ripe acidity to give a powerful, concentrated and succulent wine. We chilled this slightly, till it was was cool, not cold. A revelatation! The aromatics were beautiful with a freshness and purity I associate more with the Vai Nua (another excellent wine from FitaPreta), with aromas of blueberry fruit, pine needles and lavender. As it warmed it became more generous, as expected, and the aromas warmer as the spice and wood started to come through. Mouth-filling, ripe and refreshing all at once.
