Grapes for this sultry Portuguese red were crushed ultra-gently by foot in lagares, an ancient type of stone trough.
What You Need To Know
Portugal’s wine revolution—from an industry focused almost exclusively on sweet ports to one of the world’s most exciting zones for dry wines—has spread from the heart of port country throughout the country. Amilcar Saldago of Quinta de Arcossó is a case in point. Saldago grew up in Trás-os- Montes, an isolated, wildly rocky and remote region in northeast Portugal that’s cut off from the coast by mountain ranges. In 2003, he bought an abandoned farm in Trás-os-Montes, planted a 30-acre hillside to native grape varieties and built a small winery. Rooted in granite soil and farmed to achieve low yields, the vineyard has thrived. This seductive, cherry-inflected red blend shows that this obscure corner of the world can produce distinctive, delicious wines.
