Medium-bodied, flavorsome and lovable red with a gorgeously-warm, dusty texture and tons of tasty flavours of blackberries, cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla. Beautiful stuff. Like almost all Portuguese wines, Bergamota is a blended wine (as opposed to a “varietal” wine, where just one variety is used), but in this case based primarily on the great grape of Port, Touriga Nacional. The term “Crianza” isn’t used in Portugal, but with 12 months in wood, this is the style space Bergamota occupies.
Can only be drank with fennel pork meatballs with toasted pine nuts and kale.
