Ribeiro tinto
If you're looking for a TRULY different kind of red wine, look no further: this is it. The fruit is juicy and ripe, but you do not feel the sun. Insted of that, the wine leaves an intensely salty and citrus sensation, a feature that sets it apart from almost any other red wine. VERY interesting!!
