New Releases from Portugal

aqui fica o extracto com cotações bastante aliciantes para os vinhos da Casa de Cello

2004 Casa de Cello Quinta de San Joanne Vinho Verde Mancelos 89
($13) Pale gold. Pungent notes of grapefruit peel, quinine and peach pit on the nose, with a hint of sea spray. Juicy and fresh, the bright citrus flavors nicely accented by tangy minerals and pepper. A firm, juicy midweight, with a clean grapefruit quality that carries through the long, vibrant finish.

2003 Casa de Cello Quinta de San Joanne Escolha Vinho Verde Minho 87
($20) Light gold color. The mineral-driven nose is reminiscent of Chablis, with lightly smoky tangerine and orange tones. Round, supple and medium-bodied, with flavors of Granny Smith apple and pear. A salty kick on the finish adds energy to this ripe wine, which is a bit marked by the hot vintage. (Europvin U.S.A., Oakland, CA)

2004 Quinta da Vegia Prota Fronha Tinto Dao 89
($16) Deep, bright red. Spicy, almost saline aromas of fresh red berries, plums and cherry skin. Lively and sweet, the red fruit qualities showing striking purity and focus. Really delicious wine with impressive lift and energy to the finish, which leaves a strong impression of pure, fresh strawberry and raspberry fruit. Already drinking well. (Europvin U.S.A., Oakland, CA)
