More about this wine from Dão, Portugal
Portugal is home to wine that 8,000 percent outperforms its average price per bottle! It's also home to varietals that are insanely difficult to pronounce! This red blend hails from the region called Dão, which along with the Douro region comprise the top two red regions in the country. The blend is made of two indigenous grapes: Touriga Nacional and Tinta Amarela, and another grape, Tinta Roriz, that you're probably more likely to know by the name of Tempranillo.

The juice is aged in stainless steel tanks and does not see any oak, which gives the vino a really awesome melty and fruity sensation as you sip. The nose is super welcoming with Portuguese lavender and vibrant and ripe red fruit like pomegranate and strawberries, but this easy-to-get-to-know wine gets a little more complex as you get to know it. After the initial sips, you'll find these ripe fruits melt into dusty, rural roads of earthiness.
How to drink it

Eating...

That earthiness aka dirt road in the wine makes for rustic pairings like mushroom risotto and herb roasted chicken.
