Fitapreta Palpite Reserva 2017

Alentejo, Central and Southern Portugal, PortugalThis blend of aragonez, alicante bouschet, trincadeira, and touriga nacional is Fitapreta's top wine that they make every year. Very perfumed wild black fruit, blueberries, thorns, musk flood this full bodied Alentejo red, growing on schist soils. After a native ferment this aged 18 months in French oak prior to bottling. Tannins are dusky and soft, hugging the ripened fruit to a warming finish. Primed for drinking now, but with a future ahead.Tasted: 10 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 41.95 consignment Producer: FitapretaDistributors: Premium Portugal Wines
