TASTING NOTES
Ferreira Ruby is a classic Red Porto, an attractive and rich wine, with genuine scents of the best wines from the Douro region, produced with the care and craftsmanship acquired over 250 years of excellence, which has made Ferreira the producer of the highest quality and the first brand in Portugal. Ferreira Ruby Porto is vinified using the traditional Porto method. The hand-picked and selected grapes are gently pressed and, after being de-stemmed, they are fermented. This process is carried out under constant monitoring of the temperature and density of the wine, so as to make it possible to choose the ideal moment for adding alcohol, which is essential for stopping fermentation and allowing the Port to maintain its typical sweetness. After the harvest, the wine remains in the Douro region, where the lees stabilize thanks to the cold winter. The following spring the wine is transferred to the traditional cellar in Vila Nova de Gaia, where it is decanted into oak barrels, in which it will refine for a few years. The wines selected for the final blend have an age of between 2 and 5 years of refinement, ensuring the final product richness and balance, with an average age of 3 years. The intense ruby ​​color demonstrates the wise selection of the grapes. On the nose its intense aroma recalls ripe fruit. Full-bodied and rich, it shows great balance between sweetness and its tannic structure, bringing unique characteristics and a persistent finish. Ferreira Ruby Porto is ready to drink, it will not improve with further refinement in glass. It is advisable to keep the bottle upright, protected from sources of light and heat, at a temperature between 16°C and 18°C. Once opened, it is not necessary to decant it, and it will keep its taste notes unchanged even for 4 weeks after opening. It is often served as an aperitif or with creamy cheeses, but also goes well with chocolate desserts and fruit tarts. Serve alone or slightly chilled or with ice.
