The NV "CICONIA" Vinho Verde is the 3rd vintage of this wine from Relvas (best known in the South), although the first I've seen here. It is a blend of Avesso, Azal and Loureiro. A bit fizzy, fruity but crisp, not particularly sweet and coming in at 10.5% alcohol, this is a friendly and well priced Vinho Verde. It has a traditional feel, but exceeds expectations by demonstrating a fair bit of solidity in the mid-palate, relative to the type. I rather liked this effort and it should be available dirt cheap. Although it is a non-vintage wine, it is all from the 2011 vintage. A small date stamp on the capsule of L311044RV identifies the production reviewed (the '11 indicates 2011). Drink now.
