LBV (Late Bottled Vintage) Port shares the character of a Vintage Port but matures at an earlier stage. It is made from the traditional grapes from Douro, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Sousão. Once opened, LBV Ports should be consumed within 2 to 4 months.
A complex and aromatic nose, on which the intense bouquet of very ripe berries prevail, especially blackberry and raspberry, with subtle notes of black pepper wrapped in notes of aged wood. It starts delicate but richness develops in the mouth; assertive tannins engaging the palate with the flavours of ripe berries as well as a hint of dark chocolate. A long and velvety finish.
Grape(s): Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional
