Herdade de Portocarro second edition of Manda Chuva is more mysterious than the first one. It’s a blanc de noir (a white wine made from red grapes) that is mainly Sangiovese. The wine is fermented in used oak vats and matured in stainless steel, resulting in a fresh and citrusy white. The palate reveals mint, lime and salt, with nectarines and loquats in the middle. The Manda-Chuva has a long and gastronomic finish, like all Portocarro wines. It matches well with slow-grilled matured beef, green asparagus risotto, or fresh seafood sushi or sashimi.
