75cl Magnum Wines Touriga Nacional,Trincadeira, Aragonez Portugal > Alentejo Juicy, easy drinking
This solid, dense blend of Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira and Aragonez has good structure with juicy berry fruits alongside sweet tannins. It’s rich, the firm texture giving the wine weight and concentration. The aftertaste brings forward more juicy fruitiness.- Wine Enthusiast 90 points

The demarcated region of Alentejo is only 40 years, although there are traces of the culture of wine since Roman times, including the use of clay pots, which are still used. “Alentejo” means "beyond the Tagus River" and it is this river that borders the north region. Flat region with low altitude, it has extensive plantations of several hundred hectares of vineyards. The intense heat that is felt here in the summer causes the grapes to reach an excellent maturation, with great concentration. The wines are very aromatic and smooth and have already achieved a considerable international reputation.The 60 hectares of vineyards are planted with the traditional grape varieties Trincadeira, Aragonez and the famous Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet. The vineyard is composed by several portions and it’s planted in poor sandy soils.

 

Established in 2012 by a team of three experienced winemakers, Magnum Vinhos has its roots in the Dão region but also produces wines from Alentejo and Douro. Carlos Lucas, Lúcia Freitas and Carlos Rodrigues had all worked at Dão Sul (Carlos Lucas was one of the co-founders back in 1990). They each brought experience and expertise from previous lives in the wine industry and chose to focus on authentic wines made from indigenous Portuguese grapes.
