Produced from grapes grown on Fonsecas own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the Douro.
This LBV has a very deep purple black colour with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is tight, with impressive depth and background, suggesting a wine with plenty still to give.
The base of brooding dark berry fruit is laced with liquorice and dark chocolate. Fleeting balsamic, plummy notes emerge as the nose gradually opens up. On the palate, the wine has exceptional weight and volume, supported by a mesh of thick, dense tannins.
Luscious blackberry jam and plum flavours surge through into a seemingly endless finish. A powerful and uncompromising Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage retaining every ounce of aroma and flavour. - Producer
