Paulo Laureano tinto 2017 (VR Alentejano)

 Read in English      Leer en Español

Paulo Laureano is one of the most recognized Portuguese winemakers and a reference in Alentejo region (centre-south country). Agronomist, winemaker trained between Portugal, Spain and Australia after teaching at the Évora University for 10 years, he decided to devote himself exclusively to winemaking. His minimalist philosophy as a winemaker leads him to make wines like this: a blending of Aragonez (aka Tempranillo), Trincadeira and Alicante (aka Garnacha Tintorera).

In very good color view thanks to the Alicante grape variety (known as Garnacha Tintorera in the Spanish east). The nose mixes the black bush fruit and the sweet spice notes of an aging. The complexity from the tertiaries reveals leather or chocolate hints.
In mouth a sweet and fruity entrance.
Round, gourmand and good freshness development. Good density and better velvety texture with an elegant crayeux touch. Highlights for the forest fruit still fresh and juicy. Polished and discreet tannin, as discreet in its heat.

A faithful wine in the Alentejo's wine style: warm red wines from French and Portuguese varieties in blending that have grown on limestone, schist and granite soils .... And a great value for money that in this case moves around $ 7'80. A tannin that allows it to be stored for one or two years at most. If you decide to open it, do it with a temperature of 13º C. As a pairing you can earch for traditional Portuguese cuisine: Empadas de Galinha (from Alentejo), the Peru Recheado (Alentejo too) or the Cozido à Portuguesa (typical in northern Portugal).
