A RED WINE THAT STRIKES TWICE.
If you’re the kind of person who would pick a bold red wine to sip in a thunderstorm, Lightning Strikes Again has something for you. Big, bold, dry, and full of power, it’s no surprise that even Shakespeare had to add Portuguese wine into his famous works. There’s not a red blend that is more dramatic, mesmerizing, and most importantly, brimming with fruit. You’ll find blackberry, fig, plum, and even clove in your glass.
SAY IT LIKE THE PORTUGUESE.
In Portugal, red wine is called vino tinto. So if you want to impress your friends, ask them if they want a glass of vino tinto, and when they look confused, tell them you mean Portuguese red wine!
“Tinto” originates from the Latin word for “stained” or “tinted.” This is a reference to the deeply pigmented, inky red grapes that Portugal is known for. The hypnotizing color of Lightning Strikes Again comes from the skins of the grapes, which literally “stain” the wine. You can also look for purple staining on your glass and maybe your teeth, but hey, it’s totally worth it.
PAIR IT WITH ANYTHING BIG, BOLD, AND FLAVORFUL.
When you’re cooking dinner with Lighting Strikes Again, don’t hold back on the flavor. You will love this wine with bleu cheese steak, barbecue smoked sausages, pad thai fried rice, and loaded baked potatoes.
