Animus Venho “Verde” refers to the fact these are young wines meant to be drunk early. The wine is light, fresh, and delicious.
Get ready to be surprised. And she was! She, who doesn’t like bubbles, got by the slightly fizziness on the side of the glass very quickly.
This is a wine that is going to make you smile, even before you taste it. Look closely at the label. Great Artwork. The green ‘i’ in the name gives you a hint at what’s coming.
The grapes are pressed at low pressure, and then fermented with low temperature. 90% Louriero (one of the major grapes in the region) and 10% Arinto grapes. The Faria family has been making wine in Vinho Verde for over 200 years. Beginning just a decade ago, growers like Vicente Faria decided to make their own, estate Vinho Verde and take control of the finished wine.
After all, Vicente is a 7th generation winemaker, so he has a long family history to his advantage. He also studied oenology in Bordeaux and Portugal to give him a broader slate on which to draw ideas and concepts. Up to five grapes can be used for Vinho Verde, but he only used the best two, resulting in a great wine.
This is going to be great with salad and nibblies.
