With a very deep and black purple colour. A very concentrated and fruity aroma, with jammy, blackberries and plum notes. The great mouthfeel reveals all the complexity flavour of fruit, full-bodied and balanced wine soft and velvety background, a long and lasting end. A vintage wine with a great potentiality to be aged.
Winemaker Notes :
LBV is a Port wine of one single harvest, which is produced in a good quality year. Bottled between the 4th and 6th year following the harvest, in contrast with Vintage, L.B.V., and benefits by considerable ageing in oak casks. With a style derived from Vintage Port, the L.B.V., are excellent wines. They are comprised of blends of the best wines from one year.
