Quinta da Calçada, located in the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region, is a large-scale estate known for producing high-quality wines. They're a perfect example of why big isn't always bad in the wine business.
The Quinta recently finished construction on a brand new vinification facility with a production capacity of one million liters that's outfitted with the latest cutting-edge technology. This best of the latest and greatest technology joins the estate's time-honored grape growing and winemaking techniques to produce the perfect marriage of tradition and innovation.
The property specializes in the production of Vinho Verde; however, they have outstanding vineyard holdings in the Douro, allowing them to produce a variety of dry table reds. The Lago Tinto is a sustainably farmed blend of Tinto Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, and Touriga Nacional. The finished wine is matured entirely in stainless, preserving the fruit's natural lift and freshness.
In your glass, you'll find dark berry and spice aromas on the nose, leading to a palate of plum, black raspberry, and berry compote. The smooth fruit is enveloped by delicately ripe tannins that keep the palate clean through the finish.
Quinta da Calçada Douro is another terrific value-driven Portuguese red that will pair with a myriad of foods, including chops, pasta, pizza, and burgers.
