“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 2016 release – it’s packed with all the same major flavor impact and already boasting a shiny gold medal from a prestigious international competition.
An exclusive for our customers, Giesta is 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 ripe, red 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.
