Vinhos FitaPreta "Fita" Vinho Tinto 2019 - Alentejano, Portugal
Varietals: Aragones, Trincadeira, and Alicante Bouschet
This has a pretty nose of crushed raspberry, strawberry jam, hibiscus, lemon zest, and rosemary. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins and crisp acidity. Fresh with a delicious, honeylike finish.
A 23-year-old winemaker and English Viticulture it could only go wrong. Portuguese winemaker António Maçanita and resident English viticulturist consultant, David Booth met for the first time in early 2004. Over the next few months, António was learning viticulture with David and a close friendship developed. The next step doing some wine, first wine, first success, with Trophy Alentejo Award by IWC, given the second time in 22 years of competition.
Fitapreta produces wines that reflect our character, what we like, what we aspire, our mood, and our perception of aesthetics. We are as much about diving deep into our culture and varietals, as we are about changing the world with news trials, new tastes, and new blends. We produce the wines for us, for us to like it. And hopefully, some people will share our same esthetics for wine and… Who knows… For life.
