João Guedes, tasting note published in December 3rd 2019
The wine is from Alentejo. It has a deep red ruby color. In the nose there is an aroma of ripe black fruit, floral notes, anise and cherry. Soft tannins and the barrel very well integrated can be felt on the palate. It is a very harmonious wine with a long persistent finish. It should be consumed at 16 degrees. As a perfect match I recommend a good matured meat.

The vineyard is managed under an accurate sustainable agriculture farming system. Grapes harvested manually at dawn and morning for small boxes.

Then it aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (20% in new barrels). Then it staged in the bottle for 8 months.
The RG Rovisco Garcia brand originates from the Carvalho Rovisco Garcia family. Linked to farming for several generations, the family still manages their lands in the municipality of Avis, Alto Alentejo. In 1998, Maria Antónia de Carvalho Rovisco Garcia delegates to her two sons, Francisco and António José, the management of the lands she inherited from her parents. From this time a new dynamic is introduced, with investments in Olival and Vinha. For the marketing of the products of the estates of Maria Antónia de Carvalho Rovisco Garcia was created, in 2008, RG – Herdade do Monte Novo e Conqueiro – Products of te farm, wines and olives of Alentejo, ACE.
