Produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration, so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine´s body and bouquet.
