“These wines combine their quality to the name of the Carthusian monks who, since 1598, leads a solitary life of prayer in the Monastery of Santa Maria Scala Coeli. The red wines are based on the most common varieties of Alentejo: Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alfrocheiro, Periquita, Moreto and paint Caiada. With aging in oak wood, they are wines with good structure, elegant, combining the flavors of the grape varieties used to a persistent and complex flavor.”

“This red wine is cherry with brown edges. It mainly smells like chocolate.Delicious, tasty, liked it.
