Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 13, 2013
Classe Wines is pleased to announce the availability of 2008 Vitivinicola Carla Rita Ferreira Contraste Vinho Tinto, a high-quality Portuguese red wine from the Douro Valley produced by Conceito Wines. It represents another excellent offering from by young Portuguese winemaker Rita Marques and her Conceito winery.
2008 Vitivinicola Carla Rita Ferreira Contraste Vinho Tinto is a Portuguese red wine with a taste that is both sweet and concentrated. It has aromas of leather, plum, and berries along with blackberries and black cherries. The palate is both tight and fragrant, forming a perfect contrast with the wine's sweet taste. The taste is further contrasted by the tannins and mineral notes, and the result is a wine that is pleasant rather than harsh. The finish is reminiscent of both toffee and chocolate. Experts who have revised this wine have found that the consumption window will last until 2017, making it an excellent addition to the collection of any Portuguese wine enthusiast. It is also ideal to serve with a wide variety of pairings including bean and sausage soup, lamb, pork, or with lighter snack food such as cheese, and is excellent on its own as well.
This excellent red wine is another strong result of the efforts of Vitivinicola Carla Rita Ferriera of the Conceito winery in the Douro valley. The Conceito winery began producing under that label in 2005, three years after her first harvest in 2002, when she took over the management of the estates from her mother. She travelled far and wide to learn skills from winemakers as far away as New Zealand, and the result is quality products like this one.
2008 Vitivinicola Carla Rita Ferreira Contraste Vinho Tinto is available from Classe Wines for a price of $24.95 per bottle, $146.71 per half case, and $290.42 per case. It can be ordered by calling 1-800-793-9141 or by visiting classewines.com
