This wine is protected by an anti-fraud system.

Intense garnet color.

The nose shows ripe fruit combined with soft notes of leather, wood and even a slight vegetal and spicy touch.

In the mouth, the wine is balanced, slightly evolved and with medium structure and volume.

Shows a fruity taste, very spicy, earthy and something where the wood shows a nice integration.

The aftertaste has an average length and an interesting persistence.

"Vinha do Fojo 2015 (Quinta do Fojo) was aged for 23 months in 60% new French barrels and is 14% alcohol. Oh my. It announces its presence as a wine to be reckoned with only after 40 minutes in the glass. At that point it shows pure power, with no astringency. It also has admirable depth. The first pour (of the wine) shows some fruit, some oak and some power, but then the power takes over. It is very well handled, but be aware that it is for a wine lover with a cellar. It will need a few years, at least, of even more aging. It is not completely unattainable, but you would be wasting this rare wine if you opened it today. It should hold up for a few decades, maybe more. The producer tends to classify her best red in a vintage as Fojo or Vinha do Fojo (analogous to the practice of Barca Velha). This wine could be a Fojo. Made from very old vines planted in the late 19th century, only 12,000 were produced."
