This dish is delicious, the combination of spicy flavors and strong contrast to the freshness and citrus flavors of the wine works very well. A perfect marriage. The wine is wonderful, I recommend to all lovers.

Friends: Rui and myself

Wine : Fita Preta

Made from grapes typical of the Alentejo, the wine had almost no intervention highlighting the true aromas and flavors of the region.
Tasting notes: lemon yellow color, intense flavors of pineapple and citrus with subtle mineral notes. Impressive freshness , good fruit. In the end good persistence.


-4 squid cleaned and cut into strips
-Half an onion, chopped
-2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
-A dash of olive oil
-1 tomato, diced
-Salt, black pepper and white
-Cayenne pepper to taste
-Curry and ginger powder (about 2 teaspoons)
-2 tablespoons tomato paste
-1 cup white wine
-Chopped chives

Sauté garlic and onion in olive oil.
Add diced tomatoes and squid. Cover and let sweat for about 10 minutes.
Add the tomato paste, salt, pepper, curry, ginger and finally the wine.
Cook and determine the sauce, about 10 minutes.
Serve with white rice and sprinkle with chopped chives.

Bon appetite!
