Tiago Sampaio is making really exciting natural wines in the mountains of the Alto Douro in northern Portugal (pictured above). This is a chuggable blend of 25 different varieties, roughly 50% red (Rufete, Mourisco, Tinta Roriz, etc) and 50% white grapes (Gouveio, Rabigato, Donzelinho, to name a few) from a single 80 year old vineyard planted on a steep granite slope, fermented whole cluster in old granite lagers, then aged mostly in concrete tanks with a small percentage of the juice going in chestnut barrels, bottled with just a touch of SO2. This is a juice box for grown ups, that you should keep in the fridge. It's so good!
