M. Chapoutier Pinteivera

M. Chapoutier Pinteivera 2012

The M. Chapoutier Pinteivera is made from grapes grown in the Duoro Valley in Portugal. Known for producing exceptional Port, the Duoro River Valley's harsh winters and dry, hot summers provide the perfect climate for rich, bold wines such as Pinteivera. Deep black in color with strong flavors of dark fruit, it pairs best with beef, lamb or game and grilled vegetables.
