The Guide indicates that the whites of Monterrei are “intense and fruity, tasty and fresh in the mouth, with a good alcohol-acidity balance”. For its part, the publication details that “the young reds have a good fruity character”, while the reds with aging “begin to gain weight in the area thanks to the good balance between the fruit and the nuances of the aging”.
These results attest to “the excellent work being done in our wine-growing territory”, points out Lara Da Silva, president of the Regulatory Council, “where winegrowers and winemakers give the best of themselves to produce better quality wines every year”.
