Fitapreta Tinto 2017

Alentejo, Central and Southern Portugal, PortugalThis characterful blend of aragonez, alicante bouschet, and trincadeira comes from the rocky schistous vineyards of Alentejo, and vines planted 1979-1989 at 300-400m. After native ferment in inox, this rested 9 months between French barrel and inox. Bright and lively with tobacco, branch, black raspberry and red currant, this medium bodied red is bedded on stones, seasoned with rock roses, and spiced with subtle red pepper on the finish. Tannins are grippy and fine, and acidity is brisk throughout, easily carrying the 14.5 degrees. Fantastic value, especially in Ontario.Tasted: 13 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 32.00 private wine shops ON 20.95 consignment Producer: FitapretaDistributors: Premium Portugal Wines
