Quinta do Crasto (Douro)
Product not available in United States
Quinta do Crasto Honore Magnum 2015 is one of the flagship wines of the Crasto brand, a red that will amaze you for two reasons: its powerful aromatic expression, and its presentation in the magnum format of 1.5 liters. Between La Regla and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto has been owned by the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for more than a century. Did you know that the name of the villa evokes a fortified Roman stronghold called "castro"? There's more: in the surrounding area, archaeological remains have been discovered related to the production of wine; the structure of a wine press, fragments of wine storage of different sizes, and other materials from the 3rd to 4th centuries AD.
The vineyards of the Quinta do Crasto stretch across the steep and stony slopes in a complex mosaic of geometries, where terraces and high vineyards are combined, testimonies to the historical thickness of the cultural landscape of the Alto Duero Vinhateiro, an area classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. In spite of the wild nature of the place, the poverty of the uneven soils, and the excesses of the hot and dry climate, the excellence of the fruits compensates for the difficulty of the work, generating a long viticultural tradition. The terrain is one of gentle undulations, which allows for optimal drainage and facilitates the vegetative development of the strains.
This wine has an aging period of 12 months in French and American oak barrels in equal parts, and will be the ideal companion for a large celebration table.

This red wine is cherry with brown edges. Sweet caramell flavour.. I got the impression that it was a well bodied wine.
