Story

About Bergamota

“The mix of the Touriga Nacional grapes from three different Dão Regions: Castendo, Serra da Estrela e Alva gives this wine spectacular complexity, richness and great structure. One of the most famous grapes of Portugal grown on the snowy hills and with its low yields shows unique character – earl grey, tangerine, violet petal aromas packed with dark fruit on the palate. And from those characteristics Bergamota takes its name describing perfectly the liquid in the bottle.”

Bergamota is the expression of elegance and aristocracy. Plenty of violet notes typical of Touriga Nacional. Dense and complex. “Very deep mulberry core with black inflections. The rich and generous nose explodes with ripe cherries, pomegranate seeds, black chocolate and toasted walnuts. Showing slights signs of advancement already, the wine has leather and tobacco leaf notes. The lightly drying tannins are well integrated as is the medium acidity.” - Wine Enthusiast.
