The story: Paço das Côrtes is a family business, dynamic and professional in the production and sale of wines, with a modern management focused on exports. All of their wines are "Reservas" from the Lisbon region. In cooperation with one of the most prestigious Portuguese winemakers, António Ventura (winemaker of the year 2006 and 2013), they have managed to create quality wines with a modern style and excellent value.
Why you’ll love me: Intense ruby color, vibrant aromas, where stone fruits (black plums) and cocoa and balsamic notes stand out, revealing its Atlantic influence. The mouth is fresh and intense, with fine but present acidity, well-matured tannins with volume, and a finish with freshness, harmony and balance.
