Quote – “Wine enthusiasts and critics already know the effect of the word “Alentejo” when it comes to wines. They’re known for their quality, centuries-old tradition and peculiarity. We’re showcasing some of them to you today from one distinct brand: Damasceno. That being said, today we bring you a few wines from a sub-brand, a red and a white Nocturno from 2013, all at a great price of 5€. With its own brand come the Demasceno white from 2013 and the red from 2014, wines that have proven themselves to be unique and very intense in flavour. Damasceno’s Reserve Red from the year 2010 is also a wine we suggest you try, having been awarded some points and accolades by several different wine critics. It’s just under 17€, so you should jump on the opportunity to try it” (www.portugalvineyards.com) [about vintage of 2010]
