Magnum Barca Velha Red 2011
20 pts Revista de Vinhos - Its colour is deep ruby. Very complex aroma, with prominent spices such as pepper, balsamic notes, cedar and tobacco box, red fruits such as ripe plum, slate and a high quality, well integrated wood. It has a vibrant acidity in the mouth, very lively, very firm tannins, notes of spices, black fruits and balsamic flavours. The finish is extremely long, of great elegance and complexity.

Winemaking:
Vinified in the Quinta da Leda winery, using selected grapes mainly from this estate, but also from elevated areas in the Douro Superior. After destemming and gentle crushing, the grapes were put into stainless steel vats, where alcoholic fermentation took place. A long, gentle maceration was carried out at a controlled temperature in order to extract the compounds that contribute to the colour, aroma, flavour and longevity of the wine. It was matured in barrels of French oak for a period of about 18 months. The final blend was made based on the careful selection of the best wines, resulting from the numerous tastings and analyses carried out on the different existing blends and barrels, throughout this period. It is in this selection that the "secret" of Barca-Velha lies. So as to preserve the highest quality, it was subjected to filtration only before bottling.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Franca,Touriga Nacional,Tinto Cão,Tinta Roriz

Tasting Notes:
Its colour is deep ruby. Very complex aroma, with prominent spices such as pepper, balsamic notes, cedar and tobacco box, red fruits such as ripe plum, slate and a high quality, well integrated wood. It has a vibrant acidity in the mouth, very lively, very firm tannins, notes of spices, black fruits and balsamic flavours. The finish is extremely long, of great elegance and complexity.

Store and Serve Advices:
It should be placed vertically the day before drinking and opened 2 to 3 hours before serving. With so many years in the bottle, the wine should be carefully decanted to separate its natural sediment. Ideally, it should be served at 16ºC-18ºC.

Food Pairing:
It is suggested that it be savoured calmly, paired with more elaborate meat dishes, game and even some cheeses, with exquisite, well integrated flavours.

Allergens:
Contains sulfites.
