Winemaker's Notes

Red fruit and spice aromas are bolstered by rich fruit flavors and supple tannins that work well at the table any night of the week. Tapas, rich soups, burgers, pastas, and pizza pies are all fair game with a bottle of Monte Velho on deck.

The wine shows integrated spicy ripe fruit and oak characters, with a balanced and well rounded palate, good body and a soft tannic structure.
