Cottas 2016 Late Bottled Vintage
The grapes come from the house's vineyards in Cima Corgo. The grapes for this magnificent port wine have been foot-trampled in a container with a granite base called "lagares" and stored in large oak barrels, called "tonels." This Cottas
LBV is a blend of full-bodied, robust and fruity wines from a single year. These are specially selected to be stored for approx four years in oak barrels before being bottled.
This LBV's characteristic is its fullness and deep taste, with a powerful, captivating bouquet. The mixture is bottled in the same way as vintage port unfiltered to retain as much of this as possible. Therefore, sediment may occur in this port wine.
Cottas Late Bottled Vintage Port has an intense and clear red-purple colour, which gives it a youthful touch. It is rich, full-bodied and ripe notes of dark fruits, berries and spices, and perfectly balanced with soft peppery tannins and with a fine acidity that ensures a solid and harmonious experience that leads to a long and lingering aftertaste. This classic lightly dry finish is always present and is one of the finest LBV Ports available.
