Editorial Reviews for Periquita Reserva
Imported by: Palm Bay Imports Fl 40% Castelao, 32% Touriga Nacional, 28% Touriga Franca Pencil shavings and dried green herbs pop on the nose followed by astringent red fruits and rusty aromas. On entry this is almost sweet for a second, rich with ripe fruit but the vibrant acidity quickly washes that away and offers a great contrast to the ripe red fruit which recalls strawberries, watermelon and cranberries on the palate. A bit simple perhaps, this is none the less juicy and bright with a lovely finish that is delicate yet fairly long and laced with licorice and medicinal flavors from oak ageing along with a hint of rose petal. Juicy, energetic and fun to drink while retaining a fairly classic structural profile. 88pts
Ruby color. Aromas of blackberries, raspberries, dry figs and cherries. Fruity, balanced fruit / acidity with pleasant soft tannins. Medium finish.
