Monte da Ravasqueira Classico Red is a dark red colour with violet tones. A frank and exuberant nose, with a Syrah varietal expression. Notes of red fruit, spices, and chocolate. Bulky attack, with minty notes. Elegant to taste, with persistent and elegant tannins. Long and harmonious finish. A red wine full of personality, which accompanies every moment in an indelible way.
Made from the Trincadeira (25%), Aragonez (25%), Syrah (25%), and Alicante Bouschet (25%) varieties, this is a wine with the classic character of its castes and that the consumer recognises, but with a modern profile when tasted. A wine for all consumers, with no stage in wood, concentrated, full of volume, exuberant, elegant, and expressive.
Monte da Ravasqueira is a family-owned company, creating value for their stakeholders and supported by a culture based on the promotion of sustainability and the values of innovation, competence and human development, which produces and sells wines of a unique identity and quality. The Alentejo is a region of undulation plains, which presents a relatively smooth and flat landscape that extends over almost a third of mainland Portugal. Soil profiles alternate between shale, clay, marble, granite, and limestone, in a rather unusual diversity. The climate is clearly Mediterranean, hot and dry, with strong continental influence.Borba, Évora, Redondo, and Reguengos, four of the eight sub-regions in which the Alentejo is divided, personify the Alentejo’s identity: land of balance and harmony, with the right proportion of fruit and freshness, and energy and softness. It is from within this range that the region’s best wines come from, in which Monte da Ravasqueira proudly lies in.The main red grape varieties in the Alentejo are the Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, and Trincadeira , while in the white varieties it is the Roupeiro, Antão Vaz, and Arinto that stand out.
