The Esporão Alicante Bouschet 2012 - Red, has a deep and concentrated color. Of aroma focused on the ripe wild fruit, and notes of cigar box. In the mouth it shows vigorous tannins that give it great structure. It ends in a long and persistent way.
Herdade do Esporão is home to a unique terroir that is the result of an alliance of a very particular climate, regulated and softened by the great central lake, with different types of soil, exhibitions and the vast wine heritage of native castes, castes from other wine regions and castes. The typically Mediterranean landscape is composed of smooth undulating plains that occupy a little more than 1,800 hectares of total area, 450 hectares of which are occupied with vines and about 80 hectares occupied with olive groves.
Tasting Notes: Deep color and concentrated. Complex aroma of the caste that gave it rise, suggesting earthy aromas and light leather. On the palate, the mouth is dense and rich, well-creased with tannins that give great personality. Ends in a persistent and long form.
