% vol.

Made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the “Eugénio de Almeida” Foundation (under the label “50”) a red wine was also launched, which I particularly appreciate, an interesting white wine, another liqueur from 2008 and a Late Harvest).
Made with 100% of Alicante Bouschet. To say that this liqueur has a Vintage Port profile will probably be abusive. However, it has several characteristics in common: it can be said that it is also a “ruby” in color (it is deep – illustrated in the photo – and here it is due to the dye caste with which it is made); is bottled about 2 years after the vintage (used wood stage); and the price is surely on the Vintage floor (about 30€ per 375ml). In terms of quality, I would say it is between a Vintage and an LBV. From what I like more, there is an excellent acidity that gives it freshness and balances the notes of ripe black fruit, such as blackberries and plum; I also appreciate the complexity conferred by the notes of spices such as cinnamon, among others; the structure is iron, with the tannins angry, full of grain, to mark the test and to ask for more time of bottle.
Price: 30€
