Description of Portia Prima 2007
Portia Prima 2007 (Tempranillo)
Intense cherry colour with shades of youth at the rim. Intense aromas, with lots of nuances which highlight very ripe black fruit, assembling a multitude of aromas of a good upbringing in noble woods. Fund pepper, vanilla features, accompanied by roasted and balsamic aromas. The palate has a very strong entry, appreciating a wine very fleshy, with sweet tannins and pleasant aftertaste leaving a greasy and kind.
Bodegas Portia offers an excellent range of wines. Some of them winners of prestigious international competitions.More about the Winery
Reviews of Portia Prima 2007
- The winemaker selects grapes from the prime upper side of the bunch, known in Spanish as the 'shoulder'.
- It has a limited production of 100 new French oak barrels. After 10 months in American oak, it undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak.
- 90 point rating from Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate in the February 2008 issue.
Violet red colour of a young wine. Toffee smell, followed by coffee smell. I noticed a smoky flavour.
Cherry red, clean colour. Concentrated aroma of red fruit jam. An intense red.
I propose to pair this Ribera del Duero with sausages from the same region.
