Medium intensity, bright ruby color. Clean and complex nose. Diverse bouquet with black plum, cherry and blackberries aromas creating the ripe fruity character, followed by warm spice notes where cinnamon and vanilla stand out complemented by fresh herb nuances. Intense on the palate, showing balanced acidity, well-polished tannins and silky texture. Warm notes of toffee and chocolate add another layer of aromas. The taste ends soft and warm, showing proof of the undeniable opulence of a nice Alentejo red.
WINE PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
A fine example of the generosity of an Alentejo red wine, As Pias Red deserves to be enjoyed at the dining table. Wide slices of pork delicacies or your favorite stir fried cut with pickles will make great partners for this wine. Also try it with spiced stews, where the meat falls from the bone, such as pork cheeks in red wine or lamb, to make for an even better experience.
Due to its intensity, complexity, and noticeable warmth, we recommend serving this wine between 15 to 17oC
