Sogrape is Portugal’s Gallo Wines. It’s the biggest winemaker in the country, and it’s not above throwing a critter on the label. This is the company behind Mateus for effing chrissake.
I really really really wish Gallo could make something as good and well-priced as this Trinca Bolotas. This is some delicious juice. A light-bodied wine with medium acidity, the flavors cherry and blackberry are bright and fresh. Allspice and white pepper are balanced with a note of smoked tea leaves. This fresh bottle of red is perfect for lamb stews, cassoulet, or even a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket.
