“From sunrise to sunset at the Lezíria, on horseback between the cattle and the storks, the ‘campino’ is one of the symbols of the region.
The person wearing the worn and fainted red typical vest, always has a story to tell that must be heard.” This wine celebrates the tradition of the Ribatejo region through its exuberance and intensity.
The Colete Velho red wine was produced by the Sociedade Agrícola D. Diniz, SA winery in the Tejo region of Portugal.
Located in the heart of Portugal, Tejo is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the country with many magnificent wines.
For the Portuguese, this region means not only vineyards but also olive groves, para oaks, and the home of the famous Lusitanian horses.
The region previously known as Ribatejo was named Tejo in 2009, as a tribute to the river of the same name that crosses the region, which has determined the landscape, climate, and economy of the region for centuries.
Tejo wines are the most reasonably priced wines in Portugal.
This wine is a blend of the Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, and Syrah grape varieties.
The grapes are harvested by machine during the early hours of the morning and then fermented in stainless steel vats. Finally, it aged in French oak barrels for 6 months.
It presents an intense ruby color.
Fruity, delicious nose by dominant ripe fruit aromas of blackcurrant, candied red cherry, violet, mint, pepper, and toast.
On the palate, silky tannins with an underlying sweetness, shades of chocolate and dried fruits. Medium-bodied dry wine with light acidity, and a mix of intense fruity flavor with a smooth finish.
Alcohol content: 13.5%
It should be served at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
Goes well with steak, gourmet burgers, lamb, darker meats with exotic spices, or blue cheese.
A balanced red wine whose taste lingers each moment!
