Looking for a real wine bargain? Here you are. Produced by Maria de Lourdes Mendes Oliva Nunes Osório, this is rustic and full-bodied with a pleasant tarry finish. Wild blackberries with liqueur richness and concentration of flavour and cassis. Needs a rare steak: demands it! Decant 2 hours. Great price. This robust red wine is made mostly with Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo) grapes and Jaen grapes in small amounts.

Food pairings: pizza, herb rubbed chicken wings, grilled pork.
