Monte Velho Red 2021 12 x Half Bottles
Black fruit and wild berries aromas are nicely enveloped in subtle notes of fresh spices. The palate is intense and rich, with a solid structure and long finish.
From 18-years-old vineyards planted on granitic, schist soils with open clay structure.
The 2021 agricultural year was a rainy year. During the vegetative rest period (autumn –winter) precipitation values ??were higher than the average of the last 22 years, with temperatures remaining mild. At the beginning of the vegetative cycle in spring, practically all the soils had their water reserves completely reestablished. The budburst occurred earlier, and the higher temperatures observed during the spring accelerated the vegetative development until flowering. In summer, milder temperatures contributed to a regular development of the vegetative cycle, allowing maturation to take place in a regular and balanced manner.
Grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures. Naturally occuring malolactic fermentation is followed by 3 months minimum ageing in tanks before bottling.
