Santiago Assinatura de Família Vinho Verde 2020
As you may have guessed from the name, this Vinho Verde is made by the Santiago family. Although the estate has been owned by the family for over 100 years, it wasn’t until 2009 that the then owner, Grandma “Mariazinha”, convinced the family to stop selling grapes and put their family’s name on the bottles. Two more generations of equally strong-minded women have followed their grandmother’s footsteps in creating wines of prestige and notoriety. Their Vinho Verde is more nuanced and drier than most others, favoring notes of mineral and lemon to intense fruitiness. An intensely fresh acidity makes this wine perfect with light seafood dishes and salads, and at 10.5% alcohol, it is endlessly chuggable.
