Vale D. Maria 40 Years Old Tawny Porto
Wow, here we have almost left the primary aroma area, but are gaining so many delicious impressions. Nuts, almonds, honey, maple syrup, roasted coffee and cocoa beans, liqueur and a fine hint of pine and undergrowth. All pores are opened on the tongue, sweet syrup and honey, then bitter almond liqueur and a great trace of salt. The alcohol brings a slight sharpness, which is immediately captured by the aromas. Extremely creamy with a pleasant viscosity. Everything is just right here, perfect harmony of age paired with a lively acid structure. Dried fruit and almond and nut flavor. The toasted aromas carry to the end without being overloaded. Simply perfect balance. Grandiose.
