Casa Santos Lima has been at the forefront of Portugal’s wine revolution and earned heaps of praise along the way (the world’s third-most acclaimed estate, according to the World Ranking of Wine & Spirits). They’ve crafted one acclaimed blockbuster red after the next—and, as the name suggests, Fortissimo just might be their strongest release yet. Judges at the Concours Mondial Bruxelles and the China Wine & Spirits Awards certainly think so—they awarded Fortissimo gold medals.
It’s crafted by the hugely talented Diogo Sepúlveda—who’s worked at prestigious estates in Pomerol, Napa Valley, and 5-Star James Halliday-rated Turkey Flat Vineyards in Australia’s Barossa Valley. For his latest release, Diogo blended Touriga Nacional, Portugal’s flagship grape, with berry-rich Syrah, inky-dark Petit Verdot and rich Alicante Bouschet.
Fortissimo overflows with remarkably juicy, black-fruit flavors and is silky-smooth, thanks to barrel aging. It’s sure to stand up to all your char-grilled favorites and hearty meals.
