Porto Messias Colheita 1966
A pale tawny wine, with green hues. Pretty good and complex evolution of the tertiary aromas; good wood and an assortment of spices combining into a tuned symphony with the aromas to “vinagrinho”, agreeable sour. At taste is full-bodied and unctuous confirming all the good sensations emerging in the nose, matching a powerful inner-nose and a long delicious after taste.
