Ruby Port wine is a traditional style of Port wine and Fonseca has been marketing it since the company was founded over 150 years ago. Fonseca takes great pride in its Ruby, which has maintained a high consistency of quality for over a century and a half. The wine is aged for three years in large wooden vats, where it softens and develops, without losing its freshness, its intense fruity character and its deep ruby color. Ruby Fonseca is bottled for immediate consumption. It has a deep ruby color. Fresh, vigorous and young nose, full of intense aromas of cherry and black currant. In the mouth it is full-bodied, with solid but well-integrated tannins. Long, rich and fruity finish.
It is an excellent dessert wine, particularly with mature blue-veined cheeses. It should be served at room temperature.
