Montalto are a mixed organic farm about an hour’s drive from Lisbon; they make an impressive array of wines from indigenous Portuguese varieties, and over the past few years have taken on several local abandoned vineyards, and nursed old vines back into production.

This is a 50 -50 blend of Aragonez (Tempranillo) and Trincadeira, fermented in amphorae, which have been coated in pine resin, as is traditonal in the area.

Smooth, soft and rich, with flavours of ripe and jammy blackcurrant and blackberry, herbal hints of pine and eucalyptus and a chocolatey richness to the palate.
