Periquita is renowned for being Portugal’s first ever bottled red. That’s where its originality comes from. This is one of the best red wine values in the world. If you are looking for something value oriented but want to drink some serious wine, then the Periquita red is for you.
“An easygoing wine, fruity with soft tannins. Its red fruits and juicy acidity are gently textured, giving a ripe, young wine that is ready to drink.”
