Lago Cerqueira Red – Douro

Descriptions:

Quinta da Calçada is located in the northern historic city center of Amarante, 40 minutes from Porto. It is located in the Amarante sub-region of the Vinho Verde region, about 10 minutes from the entrance to the Douro region.

Lago means “lake” in Portugese which reflects the refreshing style, but more importantly the wines are named after founder, António do Lago Cerqueira. Born in the palace (Casa da Calçada) he studied wine production and the latest techniques for vineyards, while in France. On returning to the palace, Lago Cerqueira applied his knowledge, planting vineyards that surround the Casa. He was an oenologist, diplomat and visionary.

Today Quinta da Calçada has the oldest planted vineyard in the region, that has been in production for almost 100 years. Inside the Estate you can also enjoy a 5 star Relais Châteaux Hotel and a one star Michelin Restaurant.

Tasting Notes Lago Cerqueira Red-Douro:  Aromas of prunes, strawberry and blackberries with sweet nuances of tobacco. Full-bodied. Aged in French & American oak for 3 months.

Edoardo Mirolglio (EM) 100% Mavrud

Descriptions:

Grape Varietal: 100% Mavrud (indigenous Bulgarian grape variety), from a selected vineyard.

The wines made from the late-ripening, low yielding Mavrud varietal have a deep, ruby colour with firm tannins and balanced acidity that frame the blackberry and red, ripe fruit developing a powerful, complex aroma. It has a full-bodied, dense and harmonious taste.

Mavrud is probably the most highly valued local grape variety. Bulgarians take great pride in Mavrud and actively look for wines from this variety in the market. It has been renowned and coveted since the Ancient Trojan War times.

What does Mavrud compare to?  Mavrud is likely to be a predecessor of Nebbiolo.

Fabulous aromas, much-like a beautiful Piemonte Barolo. Deep and rich, yet elegant.
