Reserva D’Amizade, Friendship Fado Riserva 2016, Vinho Regional Lisboa, Portugal
Tasting Note: A silky red blend from Portugal that doesn’t bang you over the head with fruit, but rather delights from its midpalate subtlety.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of raspberry, prune and blackberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied red blend has medium-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-grippy, medium-plus tannin.
There are hints of raisin in the midpalate along with some undercurrent, red-cherry notes.
Great quality for the price point.
Bottle Note: Fado, friendship and wine, an amazing trilogy! Especially when all three are world-class! Savour this wine and feel the difference. Every sensation will be more intense. Perpetuate your special moments with Reserva d’Amizade. Serve 16°C. Pairings: Steak, red meat, cheese. Grapes: Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah.
