A deep, almost opaque, ruby color. An aroma of very good intensity with balsamic notes of resin, cedar and tobacco box, flowers, rock rose, red fruits, truffles, forest-floor, spices, black pepper and a slight minerality that confers great complexity. Powerful on the palate, with prominent tannins of great quality, as wells as further notes of black fruit, pine needles and resin that invite a very balanced finish.
After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro. It was subsequently transported to Vila Nova de Gaia the following spring, where it aged in the customary manner in oak casks. During this period, it was subject to racking, analysis and tests to monitor its evolution. The final blend was made after careful selection of the wines to ensure their characteristics were befitting of a Ferreira LBV.
20% ABV. This wine pairs wonderfully with cheeses and rich chocolatey desserts, fresh fruit and wild berry tarts.
