A Proibida, Rouge, 2018, Açores
Grape Varietal: Mixed old vineyards
Concept: Savior and resistant, queen Isabella has ensured the existence of wines and vineyards on the islands to modern day since the phylloxera attack in the 19th Century. For many it is not even considered wine! For us, it is culture, folklore and part of our tradition. Paying tribute more than 200 years of history in the islands, this "Isabella the Forbidden" is elegant, aromatic, authentic, yet... simple like all good things are!
Tasting Notes: Dark ruby color with medium concentration and exuberant nose and intense passion fruit notes. The attack is fresh, authentic and simple like everything that’s good
