2015 Lua Cheia Insurgente Dao Tinto

Article number: Insurgente
Availability: In stock (20)
Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas (which translates to Full Moon in old vines) is a partnership between its three founders – João Silva e Sousa, Francisco Baptista and Manuel Dias, who are all veterans of the Portuguese wine industry. The goal of this project is to seek out and highlight lesser known terroirs, grape varieties, and wine traditions all around Portugal. This bottling, from the north central Dao appellation, is a blend of touriga nacional (most famously known for Portugal’s fortified wine, Port), and alfrocheiro preta, a lesser known Portuguese blending variety that contributes lots of deep color and tannins to wine. Inky in color, and full of spicy berry fruit and integrated tannins, this is a satisfying red for a colder night and slow cooked proteins like braised short ribs.
