New wines from the Alentejo region of southern Portugal are encountered this week.Four wines from the Monte Seis Reis vineyard in the Alentejo region arrived for tasting.In the mouth the wine has good texture and a long aftertaste.This is a nice wine with a slight lactic note and some sophistication.The 2012 Arte Real red is made from aragonez and trincadeira grapes.Arte real translates as "real art".Sometimes we describe a wine as "jammy," indicating very ripe fruit. On the nose the wine has aromas of ripe fruit like blackberries.The accompanying notes recommend the wine be drunk at 16 degrees Celsius, but I think it would taste better if chilled to around 13 degrees Celsius.
