Espumante Tinto Vinhão Bruto (Sparkling Red)

The unusual but quite characteristic sparkling red version of the Vinho Verde imported by us from our friend Adega Ponte da Barca

Only Vinhão grape are used  to make this gorgeous sparkling garnet red wine with a persistent pink foam and an intense and quite complex nose  with  ripe red fruit, elderberry and a touch of wild herbs. Bone-dry on the palate with a fresh, long finish.

Bruto is the Portuguese word for Brut meaning very dry.
