- Tasting notes:The Pirata da Viúva illustrates the new discoveries on the Atlantic coast of Sintra. An irreverent wine from selected plots of clay-limestone, sustained on free vines and winemaking. This is a single varietal of Castelão, aged 3 months in an old barrel of chestnut and mahogany. Fresh and tense.
