Portuguese red wine, whose quality and variety are unique in the world, does not require any presentation and will always have a prominent place in Living Wine. Our offer is specialized in the range of medium-high quality, and we always look for the wines with the best quality/price ratio.
Port Wine stands out from ordinary wines for their particular characteristics: an enormous variety of types that surprise us in richness and flavor intensity, a very high persistence either aroma or flavor, a high alcohol content (usually between 19 and 22 vol.%) in a wide range of sweet and wide range of colors.
Moscatel is a particularly aromatic grape variety, with floral, citrus and grape aromas. It reaches high sugar levels when ripe and is ideal for making fortified wines. Two regions of Portugal are famous for the fortified Moscatel: the Douro and the Setúbal Peninsula. On the other side of the Tagus River in the outskirts of Lisbon, you can also find a little in some locations.
The Moscatel has numerous variants all over the world. Two of the main types are produced in Portugal, one known locally as Moscatel de Setúbal (whose international name is Moscatel de Alexandria), and the Moscatel Galego Branco (Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains), the type found in the Douro, recognised worldwide as the most elegant and fragrant of the family - although elegance also depends on the location and management of the vineyard, and where and how the wine is made. Setúbal also has a small part of what is thought to be a mutation of the White Galician Muscatel, the Purple Moscatel
Brandy is a spirit produced by the distillation of wine. Brandy usually contains 35-60% alcohol by volume (70-120 tasting USA ) and is drunk as a digestive after dinner. Some brandies are aged in wooden casks. Varieties of brandy can be found throughout the wine world. Among the best known are Cognac and Armagnac from southwest France and in Portugal in Lourinhã.
