My first, but more importantly Mario’s first Barca-Velha. Even at 11 years of age, this is still comparatively young. Burgundy like, with riper, sweeter red fruit typical of the Douro. Subtle oak spice overtones and early notes of fresh leather maturity. Peppery, but very well ripened tannins, and enough structure for decades of life. Elegant style. Very nice.
