Tasting Quinta do Carmo 2008

Leia em Português

Occasionally it is only known that a good wine was drunk when you drink another else...

The wine:
Quinta do Carmo 2008, from vines planted in clay and shale soil, selected from traditional Alentejo varieties - Aragonese, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet - and a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon to give it more structure.

In the eye:
Deep and clear ruby-garnet, showing that it wasn't just brought from the vineyards to the bottle.

On the nose:
Delicate notes of black fruit, chocolate and a bit of toast.

In the mouth:
It has enviable delicacy and lightness itself, with balanced tannins and acidity without excessive plus a intense black fruit with chocolate and tobacco.

No hype and no pretenses. A good wine, with its own profile, to be consumed with specific moderate spiced food. It doesn't disappoint, and fulfills well its role.
