This Dona Ermelinda Palmela DOC 2004 is made from the Castelão grape in Portugal. Interestingly, Tom chose this wine to go with leftover pizza. We see from a previous post that we chose this wine for pizza another time! We also had it with home-made soup.
This Portuguese wine is medium body and fruity. In the glass it is deep purple rimmed with garnet. The nose is a very fresh spice. On the palate is soft tannins, oak, dried fruit, and fresh cherries. This is a keeper: bold, audacious, and delightful!
Tom: This Dona Ermelinda Palmela DOC 2004 has a fruity (blackberries) and slightly vegetal nose. It comes across as a big red, and so it should be good with pizza.
