Otima 10 Port are aged in the company’s extensive Warre's cellar in Vila Nova de Gaia. Ports aged in the Douro tend to react to the great heat of the summer months by gaining over-strong caramelisedflavours. A small proportion of Douro aged Tawny Ports are normally a valuable addition to the final blend, but in excess, they will unbalance a great aged Tawny Port.
Otima 10 Port is a little dry, fruity with well balanced wood-ageing flavours. The red fruit tones with delicious raisin tastes and touches of wood-aging are well integrated with its acidity. Not too sweet, it finishes with a fresh, rich aftertaste.
