Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in March 13th 2023

Garnet, ruby reflections. Notes of India ink, mint, coffee, pomegranate, pine resin, olive, and saline complements. The tannin is lively and fine, acidity provides nerve, the volume is delicate, and the finish is salty and deep. A living heritage with ample room for progression.

Monte Cascas

The red wine Monte Cascas Ramisco is born in Colares, with an unquestionable Atlantic influence, cool and humid summers, morning mists, cold and salty winds, on sandy soils; the vines extend their cords horizontally in the sand; the cords and new shoots are lifted from the sand 6 to 8 weeks before the harvest by canes about 25 cm long, called “pontons.”

The harvest took place in September and was done manually.

Vinification and aging: The grapes are partially destemmed (30%) and crushed directly into a lagar. Three days of cold maceration; 12 days of alcoholic fermentation with temperature control; gentle foot treading twice a day; 22 days of “cuvaison”; malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. Aging for 18 months in French oak barrels.

An excellent wine to enjoy on its own or paired with filet mignon and mushrooms.
