“Once Portugal’s most famous red, Dão is now softer, fruitier and very much back in fashion … this has black plum, raspberry and cherry cake flavors allied to depth and richness.”
That’s top critic Oz Clarke on a previous vintage of oak-aged Giesta. Here’s the stunning 2015 release – packed with just as much flavor and backed by a long history of coveted medals and critical acclaim.
An exclusive for our customers, it’s crafted by the talented Nuno Cancela de Abreu. He’s an expert on Portugal’s signature grape, Touriga Nacional. Giesta also features two other Portuguese stars: Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo in Spain) and spicy Jaen. Its rich, dark-fruit and subtle spice flavors will really shine with smoked sausage, pork chops or hearty stews.
According to Wine Spectator, “prices are superb and quality has never been better” in Portugal. So now is definitely the time to buy – before everyone else catches on. Don’t delay.
