Jose Maria da Fonseca Periquita Original 2015
|Region||Portugal, Lisboa, Setubal|

First produced in 1850, this is widely seen as the original branded red wine in Portugal. The Castelão fruit, then and now, comes from the Setúbal Peninsula. It gives a crisp, juicy and light wine with soft tannins. There is some spice, although the main thrust of this wine is delicious red fruit. Drink now.
Wild strawberry, cherry and underbrush notes define the core of this fresh, light-bodied red. Savory spice, anise and smoky accents linger on the lightly tannic finish. Castelão, Trincadeira and Aragonez. Drink now. 125,000 cases made.
