Fonseca Porto Reserve Terra Bella

Fonseca Porto Reserve Terra Bella 750ML       
Sku: 08469231084

Terra Bella is the first 100% organic Porto certified by USDA NOP and one of the first truly organic Portos to be developed in the Douro. Winemaker David Guimaraens and his viticultural team grow the fruit based on knowledge obtained from a plot that was introduced by the late Bruce Guimaraens, which has been organically farmed at Fonseca’s Quinta do Panascal since 1992. 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. A ruby-style Porto blended from reserve wines selected for their intense depth of color and fruit character, Terra Bella is aged for four years in neutral wood vats before bottling.

Tasting notes
This Porto has an opulent black fruit nose that carries through on the palate in layers of intense, sweet berry, plum and cherry fruit flavors supported by firm but well-integrated tannins. This is a deliciously textured Reserve Porto—velvety, smooth, succulent and plump.
