BAIRRADA: THE BAROLO OF PORTUGAL

Aged in the cellars of Bairrada in Portugal until it arrived to us this year, this cellar beauty is an INCREDIBLE value for those of us who like wines mature, mellow, and complex. Bairrada lies between the mountainous Dao region and the surf-soaked Atlantic beaches of the Portuguese coastline and specializes in the local Baga grapes. This grape is best likened to Nebbiolo, and is one of Portugal's most noble and distinctive styles. The Quality to Price Ratio here is extraordinary. You get the immense complexity and distinction of an old Barolo at under $100, aged at the cellar of the estate until its release this year. If you've been as excited about Portuguese wines as we are, and want to explore one of the country's most iconic and age-worthy styles, this is it. This wine is in a state of completely resolved tannic maturity. It has just ripe, mellow red fruits, dried rose petal perfume, and deep forest floor and damp tree bark minerality with subtle fennel and herbaceous undertones.
