Ravasqueira | Premium | Alicante Bouschet | Red | 2014 | Doc Alentejo - 93 points Wine Enthusiast
Intro: This wine is a tribute to José Manuel de Mello, for his excellence as an entrepreneur and for his passion for wine, but also a tribute to the Alicante Bouschet variety, that became a symbol of the region. In 2014, this grape variety developed a unique balance, allowing to produce the first and only 100% Alicante Bouschet wine ever produced at Monte da Ravasqueira.
Region: Alentejo (V.R)
Winery: Monte da Ravasqueira

Tasting Notes: Dark and typical in Alicante Bouschet’s color. This wine is the maximum expression of what can be an Alicante Bouschet from the Alentejo. Powerful and mature in the mouth and nose does not lose the virtue of the grape variety to generate fresh wines and always with notes of green grass or pinewood that help the prolongation of his life.
