Herdade do Rocim - Amphora Tinto 2020
Producer: Herdade do Rocim
Wine name: Amphora Tinto
Classification: DOC Alentejo
ABV: 13.0

Traditionally made talha wine, with two months in talha with the skins and then three months ageing in bottle. Juicy and filed with blackcurrant and strawberry. There are wisps of something earthy and herbal, and smooth but quite upfront tannins.

Very harmonious, with just enough of that oxidative tinge to let you know that talhas were involved, without it dominating in any way. A superb example of a talha tinto, with soft and generous fruit and perfect freshness.
