You don’t need to break the bank in order to drink better wine. Incredible value can be found in our Portuguese section, especially if your palate prefers complex, hardy red wines. Ciconia’s Alentejano bottling is 100% Touriga Nacional. Historically used as a blending grape in Port, this bold varietal’s potential for producing dry red wines has only recently been explored. The nose opens with ample dark fruit and delicate floral aromatics. A full body features dark plum, blueberry, and dried cassis with abundant tannic structure, and toasty elements from four months of oak ageing. Have a glass alongside venison stew, whiskey-glazed wild turkey breast, or oven roasted rosemary root vegetables. Cheers!
