PERIQUITA RESERVA 2018
V.R. PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL
Periquita is renowned for being Portugal's first ever bottled red. That’s where its originality comes from. And in existence since 1850, we’ve been around to celebrate the Portuguese way of life.
The Periquita Reserva represents the true Periquita tradition as well as a vision for the future. The Castelão, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa indigenous grape varieties provide Periquita Reserva with a character, a sweet aroma and complexity.
