You do not often find wines from Trás-os-Montes – neither in Denmark nor in Portugal – , but today I was lucky to find one at the local grocery store in Monte Estoril. In the glass, it is a pitch-black wine, with golden edges. The aroma has prunes, the taste is vigorous with some tannin. We had the wine with a minced steak with onions and fried eggs. The wine was great with the food.
