Ovelha Negra Red Wine 2017

An exceptional and very interesting blend produced in the Alentejo region of Portugal, by our exclusive partner products.


The wine is produced at Herdade dos Assentes de Baixo by Joaquim Costa Vargas and is the result of a blend with Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet grape varieties.


The end result is a 16º alcohol red wine.


As for terroir we can say that the vineyard is in an Atlantic-Mediterranean climate tempered with clay soil, with granitic and schist flowers and the Denomination is Alentejo Regional.


In the glass we can see a wine with deep violet color, followed by a very young aroma in the nose, with tertiary notes of wood, ripe berries, leather and balsamic, already in your mouth, a fresh, fruity taste and taste, with some Present tannins, slight roughness and rustic, will end the experience with a very persistent aftertaste.

Queria mais deste!?

Gostei tanto, que queria repetir, mas o Reserva Vargas Tinto também é muito bom e estou tentado em provar o bombeira.

Amazing Alentejo Red Wine 2017

A very good Alentejo blend for those who like red wine is a good bet.

Não conhecia e fiquei muito satisfeito

Vivo fora de Portugal, mas nasci no alentejo, em Estremoz. Encomendei uma série de vinhos e arrisquei neste e acabou por ser a estrela da noite.
