2017 Monte Bluna Bluníssima red
Shipped by Monte Bluna
It gives a voice, transmits the grandeur, strength and uniqueness of an entire region.
Bluníssima is only produced in the best years. It comes from a single varietal Aragonez vineyard with over 40 years old, located at the Moinho do Céu, in Arruda dos Vinhos and is the result of criteria and detail. It is the gift given by the best selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery and of a maceration, fermentation and malolactic transformation, aimed at complexity, potency, seduction and elegance. The wine matured in used French (87%) and American (13%) oak casks for 12 months. It rested for another 6 months in stainless steel vat until it was bottled in May 2019.
Bluníssima has deep ruby colour. The aroma presents mature red fruits, bush and menthol notes and pleasant leather suggestions. Wood is perfectly integrated, bringing sweet spices and smoked, all on a limestone background. In the mouth it is seductive and elegant, with a captivating body and freshness, structured, with robust but delicate tannins. The finish is enveloping and prolonged and has great potential for aging in the bottle.
