Winemaker's Notes:

Callabriga Douro 2008 is intensely red with shades of purple. It has complex aromas dominated by notes of red fruits, such as plum and blackberry, a discreet touch of oak and hints of spice. It is a balanced full-bodied wine, with good tannins and a rich and prolonged finish with a black fruits complexity.

Delicious with meat and aromatic seasoning, this wine is at its best at a temperature of 16º C-18º C. Try it with roast leg of lamb and rosemary.

Callabriga Douro 2008 is made from Tinta Roriz and other grape varieties from the region (Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional)

My Notes:

About Sogrape:

Sogrape Vinhos was born of the will and courage of a group of friends. In the difficult economic and political environment of 1942, they decided to stake everything on the visionary talents of one man. This man had the vision to create and develop an innovative wine company with a difference, one which could make and promote Portuguese wines on a global scale.

The willingness to innovate and the ambition to do things differently - along with respect for tradition and the values of ethics and responsibility - marked the birth of an organization that has proved capable of preserving its founder's vision and adapting to inevitably changing times.
