ALTA CORTE red – The best BIB in Norway and PAXIS the second best
The Blog SIDE2 just finished classifying the Alta Corte red as the best BIB selling in Norway , together in the first place with the Sebastian Bredal Collection Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Italia.
However the Italian BIB it sells by kr 499,90 and the Alta Corte red it’s in the shelves at kr 350,00.
Here’s the appreciation they did of the Alta Corte:
Deep ruby red. Spicy aroma with a touch of dark red berries blackcurrant, spices, unctuous with some minerality. The youthful freshness of the fragrance that promises much.
Fresh and fruity mouthfeel, sweet, light tannins, nice acid with a fairly long finish. Lots of blackcurrant and spice flavor. Good complement with meat skewer. Try this Portuguese - simply a great BIB. Produced with Caladoc and Tinta Roriz.
SIDE2 tasted 37 BIB and in 2nd place were 8 wines including our PAXIS red described as follows:
It’s a deep ruby red. Powerful, yet comfortable pleasing aroma of earth, mature character of berries and stone. Much sweetness in taste, very juicy with the strength of soft tannins with good acidity. This has enough tannin to fit both food and fun. It is simply very much personality in a BIB - a great favorite of the tasting panel. Portugal has a lot of personality in many of their wines because they have so many grapes, which they protect and develop with great professionalism - just watch that blend made of 30% Caladoc, 30% Castelão, 20% Touriga Nacional and 20% Alicante Bouschet.
