António Saramago – Louco Branco 2017, from Setúbal

The surname Saramago inspires reverence in Portugal. But it is not only through literature. António José Ribeiro Saramago (who is not related to the writer) made history in the wine industry in his country. With over 50 years of career, he is the oldest winemaker in Portugal.

He worked in the winemaking laboratory of José Maria da Fonseca since he was 14, where he remained for 42 years and responsible for great classics, such as Periquita, for example.

Today, he makes his own wines and won more than 200 awards, many of its wines have been widely appreciated by the national and international press.

This Louco 2017 white wine was produced by his son, António Saramago Filho, who began to take his own steps in the vineyards with his father, and today is running his own personal project.

The Portuguese word ’Louco’ means Crazy. As the winemaker says: “Crazy is someone who doesn’t want to be happy…! This project was born with the desire to show boldness and ambition in this magical world of wine.”

This wine was produced in the Península de Setúbal wine region of Portugal, from the Verdelho, Chardonnay and Arinto grape varieties.

The wine has a deep yellow color.

On the nose, notes of tropical and white fruits, banana, mango and peach, with just some hints of citrus aromas give a fresh and delicate aroma. On the palate, the wine presents a good structure and elegance, with medium acidity and volume.

An easy-to-drink, pleasant wine with a good balance.

An aromatic, dry, fruity wine with a medium finish.

13% of alcohol content.

You can drink it alone, but it also goes well with grilled fish meals, salads, or even white meats like chicken or turkey.
