The 2019 Mapreco Vinho Verde Rose’ cost about $10, has 10.5% alcohol (ideal for a hot day) and scored a pleasant 15 points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.
Vinho Verde translated as “green wine” doesn’t mean the wine is green; it’s a wine from a more lush green area of Portugal and they are usually white wines with a bit of spritz. The Rose’ has spritz too.
The wine has more color than Provence Rose’ wines, but it’s filled with strawberry, even a hint of cherry and is clean. You can’t ask for much more from a low-costing, refreshing summer Rose’ wine. The 2019’s are out now and like most Rose’ wines, they should be consumed during this, or next year. In Vino Veritas.
