Wine information: Casa de Saima Tinto is a wine from the Beiras region of Portugal. The progressive traditionalist - since fully taking the reins at Saima, Graça Miranda has managed to navigate the complexities of making wines from Baga in the traditional way. She has relaxed the more fundamentalist approach to Baga for the basic Tinto, which makes it more approachable in its early years without compromising its classic style. The Reserva and Garrafeira remain rooted in the ancient Corga and Barzomba vineyards, following the “chosen path” of full treading and extractive winemaking and seasoned oaked ageing. These are immensely rewarding wines of inspiring character. Casa de Saima Tinto is mainly Baga with some Touriga Nacional and Merlot. Graca Miranda keeps up the ‘fundamentalist’ tradition of treading by foot, fermenting in lagares, and ageing the wine for 12 months in (100 year old) large casks, before an unfiltered bottling.

Tasting Notes: Casa de Saima Tinto has vibrant, red berry notes on the nose with a wild streak from natural wine-making.
