Fonseca vintage ports are noted for their luscious fruitiness which develops great opulence and complexity with age. These are released only when a year produces outstanding wines with long term ageing potential. These classic vintage ports are a blend of wines from three distinctive vineyards, Cruzeiro, Santo Antonio and Panascal. Each of these contribute characteristics such as concentrated black fruit flavours with a firm tannic “grip”, opulent luscious fruitiness and dense velvety texture with flavour complexity and vibrancy of colour followed by a fine scented character and fresh acidity.

This 2000 Barbera del Monferrato has a deep ruby hue and a bouquet of ripe plum and cherries, often piqued by a hint of black pepper. Barbera-based wines are known for retaining a balanced acidity even in warmer vintages, making them an ideal partner to tomato-based dishes. These wines are lower in tannin, making them more approachable in their early years. Barbera from Monferrato differs from that made in Asti or Alba in both its provenance and style. Where Alba and Asti produce strongly structured wines, their Monferrato equivalents are more aromatic and often a little less robust.
