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.
Spicy red fruit scents
(raspberry, plums, cherries).
Juicy, spicy and vibrant, with
cherry and herb flavors.
Decant and serve at cellar
should be cool to touch.
Poultry, pork and sausages;
hearty, spicy vegetarian
