The powerful Colossal Reserva VR Lisboa from the pen of Casa Santos Lima splashes into the glass with dense purple. To the nose, this Casa Santos Lima red wine shows all sorts of blackberries. As if that weren't already impressive, other aromas like tobacco, minerals and toasted wood join in.
On the palate, the Colossal Reserva VR Lisboa from Casa Santos Lima starts wonderfully aromatic, fruit-driven and balanced.Despite its dry appearance on the palate, this red wine enchants with a delicate melt and finely woven residual sweetness. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, the Colossal Reserva VR Lisboa flatters with a velvety mouthfeel, without lacking juicy liveliness. In the finish, this wine from the wine-growing region of Extremadura, which can be stored well, finally inspires with beautiful length. Again, hints of blackberry appear. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the limestone-dominated soils are still added..
Vinification of the Colossal Reserva VR Lisboa by Casa Santos Lima.
The basis for Casa Santos Lima's premium and wonderfully powerful Colossal Reserva VR Lisboa cuvée is Alicante Bouschet, Syrah, Tempranillo and Touriga Nacional grapes. The grapes grow in optimal conditions in Extremadura. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of limestone. After the hand harvest, the grapes reach the press house by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally bottled.
