Fonseca Porto Ruby

Fonseca Porto Ruby 750ML   
Sku: 10618

Fonseca Fine Ruby Porto is produced from grapes from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo in addition to fruit sourced from high-quality partner growers. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading the grapes allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by imitating the traditional action of human feet and avoiding damage to the bitter grape seeds. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Fine Ruby Porto is aged for an average of three years in neutral wood vats before bottling.

Tasting notes
Bright, ripe, crushed red berry and plum fruit flavors mark this lively, direct young port, which is sweetly silky on the palate and supported by a crisp acidic backbone and soft background tannins.

Food pairing
Delicious with desserts made with dark chocolate or berries. Made to be consumed immediately, without further aging.
