The Wineanorak's guide wine to Portugal gives us a clue in looking at Portugal’s wine regions, saying: it’s helpful to split the country mainland in two, by drawing a line about a third of the way down. This separates the northern regions of the Douro, Dão and Bairrada, and the central and southern regions of the Alentejo, Ribatejo and Estremadura.
As a useful generalization, the future for the northern regions lies in focusing on high-quality, top-end ‘terroir’ wines, while the strength of the southern and central regions is their ability to produce accessible, full flavoured well succeeded wines and at affordable prices: new world-style wines with a Portuguese twist.
Choosing this wine you will obtain a Red wine with a tasting note of 15/20 or 86-88/100 points of one of this Portugal’s wine regions.
