Encostas de Penalva Tinto 2015 (DOC Dão): the blending they are betting on in Penalva de Castelo

Penalva de Castelo is a north-central Portuguese village founded in 1240 AC. The reference place is Viseu city the protagonist village is further east, at the Dão River foot. There, almost 1000 winegrowers that distribute 3000 acres of vineyards send their grapes to the Cooperative winery since the 70's. That wine with the Dão DOC label will reach the large commercial areas that is the miracle of cooperative wineries. Let's see his red aged in stainless steel tanks until 2016.

Cork very little draft despite his supposed two years in bottle. Visually a dark color with an already evolving bright confirming the elapsed time. Dense and colored tears. A ripe cherry nose with blueberry yogurt aromas in the background. Ripe or more mature only fruit. A round attack in mouth. A dense development, with ripe black fruit basket hints (black plum and berries) on a spicy and lactic background. Discreet acidity and half-body where roundness is the protagonist. Round finish, with persistent black spice and yogurt echoes. Imperceptible tannin despite count with polyphenolical grapes.

A Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo in Spain), Jaen (Mencia in Spain) blend with more or less 5 euros of value and ready to drink on a daily ocasion around 13º C temperature. A warm and basic red wine justifying its presence in large Portuguese commercial areas and small Indians stores in Lisbon city. Be sure to visit the luminous Lisbon: the Commerce Square, Saint-George Castle, Belém Monastery and, above all, the small restaurants with regional family cuisine.
