Reddish and very opaque purple.
Classic, elegant and with a sharp scent of violets and fennel, ripe red berries and hints of chocolate and black pepper.
The palate is well structured, extremely full-bodied, combined with ripe fruit, very strong and lively tannins that give it great aging ability. Very tasty ending with great persistence and intensity.
It should be opened 2 hours before being served and decanted.
It goes well with typical portuguese cheeses, Stilton, Gorgonzola and other fat cheeses. Ideal to accompany a strong cigar.
