Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.

Patience is a virtue, and so is this delicious Italian red wine. Open Cala de Poeti Rosso early, so that it has time to bring its inviting flavors of strawberry and raspberry to the forefront.
