ALENCADES

The original alchemy between the 3 Atlantic grape varieties, cultivated under the auspices of the Mediterranean climate. From the start, the nose is distinguished by beautiful fragrances of menthol and spice. As ample and suave as one can imagine, on the palate this warm wine exhales the fresh notes of prune and liquorice that add to its charm. Ideal for grilled foods with friends.
