Tiago Teles 'Raiz Tinto' Alfrochiero-Bical Bairrada, Portugal 2017

Regular price $25.00

Tiago Teles had been dreaming about owning a winery since he was just a pup, and in 2012 he got his chance. With a little help from his pops and his mantra 'Freedom and Friendship,' Tiago planted vines to local Bairrada varieties and is making wine like a champ. He treats his vines and his community with much respect, co-fermenting varieties and using a hands-off approach in the cellar. The wines are fresh, fleshy and clean. 

The Raiz Tinto is a co-ferment of local varieties Alfrochiero (90%) and Bical Bairrada just for lift. Dense red and black fruit followed by balsamic strawberries and pencil lead on the nose. The palate is bright with just the right amount of tannin.
