Portuguese-varietal blend of Trincadeira, Tinta Miúda and Castelão from south of Lisbon that offers terrific value for money. Ruby red in the glass, the nose is packed with fresh red berries, floral notes and hints of savouriness. On the palate, a blast of red fruit gets the juices going, with fine tannins and hints of smoked meat and soft spice providing a smooth, savoury finish.
The previously undervalued Tejo region, lying to the south of Lisbon, is capable of producing wines of enormous value and character, something that is captured by Ai Galera. Inspired by the long, and sometimes extremely colourful history of the region — most notably the life of literati Marchioness Leonor of Távora — Ai Galera’s arresting imagery and even more arresting wine quality demands and hollers for your attention.
