    Winemaker's Notes:

    100% Castelão Frances grape

    For more than 150 years, this landmark wine from the southwestern coast of Portugal has been a welcome guest at the tables of discerning wine drinkers and an international ambassador for fine Portuguese wines. Created by Jose Maria da Fonseca in 1850, Periquita is made primarily from the Castelao Frances grape, an indigenous variety that thrives in southern Portugal and, originally ushered into the public eye by Fonseca, has become nearly synonymous with the highly regarded wines of this historic producer.

    The wines has a dark ruby color with amber tints. The bouquet is of wild blueberries, vanilla, dried figs, oak and spices. In the mouth it is full-bodied, velvety smooth and well balanced, with soft tannins and a glossy finish.

    Periquita Classico is made only in vintages of exceptional quality. This is a wine that can be readily enjoyed in youth and will also sustain some 15 years or so aging! Enjoy with red meats, hearty casseroles, stews and flavorful cheeses.

    I bought this on clearance, and enjoyed it very much. Good tannins and nice aftertaste. Very smooth and mature. I'd definitely buy again.
