FitaPreta Branco, VR Alentejano, Portugal 2020
Fita Preta is a partnership between Antonia Maçanita, winemaker, and David Booth, viticulturist. Together they started the label back in 2004, after Antonio returned home from a stint at Château Lynch-Bages. This is a traditional Alentejo blend, spontaneous fermented in stainless steel and racked into stainless tanks for aging. The result is a crystal clear expression of the Alentejano terroir.
