2019 Geno Red, Alentejo, Portugal
Geno is a brand produced by the acclaimed Fundação Eugénio de Almeida, who are located in the Évora sub-region of the Alentejo.
The Geno red is a rich and fruity wine made up of a blend of both local Portuguese and international grape varieties: Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Syrah. Aragonez (also known as Tinta Roriz in Douro or Tempranillo in Spain) thrives in the hot, dry climate of the Alentejo and produces wines that are rich and lively with copious berry fruit and spice. Trincadeira (also known as Tinta Amarela in Douro) also does well in hot climates adding vibrant raspberry fruit and a herby, peppery note to blends. The red-fleshed French grape Alicante Bouschet gives an inky, treacle backbone to the blend and the Syrah adds a touch of spice.
