♦ MONTADO 2016 ♦
The purchase of Casa Agricola José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes
in 1986 saw a long-held dream become reality 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 the 1991 harvest, and has
maintained the original blend ever since.
Montado was first produced from the 1991 harvest, and the original blend has been maintained ever since, made mainly from grape varieties traditional to the Alentejo region, it is certainly a reliable choice.
