Montado Red Wine

MONTADO 2020

RED WINE
V.R. ALENTEJANO

Montado, represents a safe choice from the Alentejo region.

The purchase of Casa Agricola José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes in 1986 saw a long-held dream come true for José Maria da Fonseca: to produce an Alentejo wine using traditional winemaking methods from a historic and prestigious estate. The property won on both counts, having produced wine since 1878 and having one absolutely legendary vintage - Tinto Velho José de Sousa 1940.

Montado was first produced from 1991 harvest and has kept to the original blend ever since.
