VINIFICATION
The excellent quality of the grapes from the 2011 harvest allowed Adega de Borba to produce – for the third time – a limited edition of the wine “Rótulo de Cortiça” with the designation Grande Reserva. This wine was produced from from two of the most emblematic and important varieties - Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet - cultivated in schist soils in the oldest vineyards of the Borba region.
The harvest was performed manually and the grapes were destemmed and fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel wine mills (largares). Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels at controlled temperatures. The ageing was performed for 18 months in new tanks for the wine-wood integration. After a slight filtration the wine was bottled and stored for 12 months in the cellar.

TASTING NOTES
Grenade colour with red nuances.
Good aromatic intensity with notes of forest fruits, chocolate, tobacco and toast.
Soft and fresh flavour, strong tannins of black fruits and spices. Silky, elegant and prolonged aftertaste.
To accompany black pork, alentejo veal and game, desserts.

HOW TO SERVE
