Adega de Azueira O Magnânimo D. João V Reserva Tinto 2020

The creation of this wine draws inspiration from D. João V (D. John V) of Portugal, otherwise known as the Magnanimous or the Portuguese Sun King. D. João V ruled as King of Portugal during the first half of the 18th century. His reign saw the rise of Portugal to new levels of prosperity, wealth and prestige. This wine aims to honour the sumptuousness and refinement of the banquets of the magnanimous monarch.

Grape Varietals & Region: Alicante Bouschet and Castelão. The fruit comes from vineyards in the Lisbon area, Portugal's capital. The vines experience a temperate Mediterranean climate with the influence of Atlantic breezes. The area's originally Jurassic and cretaceous soils results in a clay-limestone soil composition, perfect for the production of wines with good sugar content.

Taste Profile: Azueira O Magnânimo D. João V Reserva Tinto is an intense and fruity Portuguese Red. Violet colour in the glass. A powerful bouquet with black plum, wild berries and tobacco spice aromas. Elegant, full-bodied and quite dry on the palate with a balanced acidity and silky tannins. Intense and fruity flavours of juicy black plums, wild blackberries and lots of spicy oak notes that linger well beyond the finish.

Winemaking Process: Long post-fermentative maceration of 30 days with selected yeasts and pectolytic extraction enzymes. The wine ages in American oak casks for a year
