Fine Ruby

Region: Portugal / Douro Valley Porto
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela

Fonseca Fine Ruby Porto is produced from grapes from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo in addition to fruit sourced from high-quality partner growers. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading the grapes allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by imitating the traditional action of human feet and avoiding damage to the bitter grape seeds. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Fine Ruby Porto is aged for an average of three years in neutral wood vats before bottling.
