Vadio 2006 Tinto Named One of Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wines of the Year

Vadio's 10 year release, the 2006 Tinto has been named one of Wine & Spirits Magazine's 100 Best Wines of the Year. Receiving a score of 94 points, this well aged Bairrada is quite impressive!  

"Loís Patrão, who makes the red wines at Esporão in the Alentejo, started this project in 2005 with Eduarda, his partner from Brazil, and his father Dinis. His family has a block of baga vines, planted sometime before 1932, when Portugal started registering vineyards. They farm it organically, providing the fruit for what is now a ten-year-old wine. It has matured to graceful refinement, taking on the fennel-like notes of an older Barolo, as well as the tarriness of tannins. Those tannins bring a tomato-leaf character to the bright cherry core of the fruit. Decant this gentle red for pork roasted with fennel."
