Herdade de Portocarro Anima

Anima

A table wine? Yes and this is where we see Portugal’s response (well, José’s response at any rate) to the Italian wine DOCG Brunello di Montalcino. A very unusual planting of a 1960s clone of Sangiovese Grosso - a grape unsurprisingly outside those permissable for this region. ‘Anima’ is named after the italian for spirit or soul and it really does evoke the Tuscan charm of one of Italy’s most aristocratic red wines. Subtle and pleasing aromas of cherries and blueberries blended with hints of tobacco and suggestions of toast which charm with their complexity and linger with a balanced, profound and elegant structure, inviting attentive tasting. This is a great example of passionate winemaking, if a rather atypical Portuguese wine. Very limited production and a very special wine indeed.
