Foral de Montoito
Foral de Montoito is a wine with a traditional Alentejo profile. It is produced with Trincadeira (30%), Aragonez (30%), Alicante Bouschet (30%) and Touriga Nacional (10%) grape varieties, harvested during the night in vineyards with red chalky soils.
The grapes are jointly fermented in conic steel vats with temperature control, and the wine ages 6 months in French oak barrels.
Like the remaining Casa de Sabicos wines, the label of Foral de Montoito is designed from an original watercolour of Graça Santana Ramalho, the producer. With tones alluding to the red fruits that characterise the wine, the light and abstract strokes of the watercolour highlight its youth.
The name Foral de Montoito is a tribute to the parish of Montoito, where the winey is located, which is holder of the charter of King Manuel I since October 25, 2017.
