Periquita is renowned for being Portugal's first ever bottled red. That’s where its originality comes from. And in existence since 1850, we’ve been around to celebrate the Portuguese way of life. The Periquita Reserva represents the true Periquita tradition as well as a vision for the future.
Tasting Note: Periquita Reserva is an intensely aromatic and elegant red wine from the Region of Peninsula de Setubal. It presents intense aromas of ripe black fruits wrapped in vanilla scents and notes of oak wood. Of soft texture, round and juicy tannins, this Periquita red wine reveals mineral notes and a good acidity.
Food Matches: Accompanies roast and grilled red meats and full flavoured cheeses
