Portos Raros em Prova

“Bordeaux é uma bebida para rapazes e o Vinho do Porto para homens

- Samuel Johson (literato inglês, século  XVIII)

Há muitos anos escrevi que as duas mais belas regiões vinícolas do mundo são a Toscana e o Douro. Afora a indelicadeza aí contida (admito) com as demais regiões do mundo de Baco, cada uma com sua particular beleza, dentre as duas regiões citadas minha balança pende cada vez mais para o Douro, não apenas pelo cenário deslumbrante, mas pelos vinhos. Enquanto a Toscana se internacionaliza, ainda com inúmeros grandes vinhos, mas já com um incomodo contingente de "genéricos", o Douro mantém-se Douro. Seus vinhos são a pura expressão daquela paisagem dramática.


Em visitas às caves de Vila Nova de Gaia, pude provar uma fantástica coleção de Portos raros (remontando a 1935!), das casas do grupo Sogevinus (Kopke, Cálem, Burmester e Barros), é líder mundial na categoria Colheita.
