It is probably the most emblematic worldwide expression of the Alicante Bouschet variety, fully expressing its great guarding potential. The historic Carapetos Vineyard is the cradle of this complex, rich and intense wine, from which small and much appreciated grapes are harvested. Respecting all the centuries-old tradition, with manual harvesting, footsteps in the great stone mills, with fermentation in them, and manual press, this wine stages in the old barrels (number 3 and 4) of brown and oak staves, with bottoms of macauba and mahogany for at least three years. After this, the wine rests in bottle for two more years. Long-keeping like Mouchão, Tonel Nº 3-4 wine will be best appreciated 15 to 20 years after harvest, although it may reach its peak long after that date.
