Quinta do Monte Xisto 2016 - Red Wine
Robert Parker 93/100
Quinta do Monte Xisto 2016 has a very intense bright red color, following the tone of previous harvests. In smell, it reminds us of rock rose, cherry and various other red fruits. It gives us the feeling of seriousness and imposes itself reminding us of the great vintages. In taste, a velvety corpulence with a surprising freshness. Fills the mouth without being heavy showing a good balance. The acidity notes give it a sophisticated youthfulness. The tannins are thin allowing the fruits to be savored. It is an exquisite, cheerful and greedy wine. Throughout your test there is a harmonious sequence of pleasurable sensations that persist at the end of your mouth. When it's over it's a pity!… .. we feel more …… We can continue to drink it because it does not spoil the conversation, but rather illuminates the spirits.
An elegant structure, consistent with its terroir, that is a very unique personality. The first aromas design us to the fifth flora: orange blossom, rosemary and fennel. More familiar with the wine we realize that he is serious, self-possessed, full-bodied, Chinese ink full of different wild and floral aromas. At mouth is attractive, elegant and silky with a surprising acidity that fills in a following fine flavors supported by seamlessly integrated soft tannins. The end extends powerful, urging us to continue the dialogue with wine.
