Magnum Wines Carlos Lucas, Maria Mora Enamorada Tinto 2012, Vinho Regional Alentejo, Portugal
Tasting Note: If you blend floral aromatics with black fruit, you get this wine.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of violet, blossom, black plum and dried raspberry.
On the palate, the dry, full-bodied wine echoes flavors suggested on the nose with a concentrated purple and black fruit profile.
Bottle Note: In this vintage we selected 3,000 kg of grapes to make a wine which we consider an excellent Alentejano representative, Alicante Bouschet (30%), Touriga Nacional (30%), Syrah (30%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) is the batch we vinified together. Then this wine rested in both new and second wear barrels for 14 months. It’s an exquisite and noble wine which expresses our intention of preserving the North “Alentejano” terroir.
