Voted the best wine in the world - Port Quinta do Noval - Vintage 2003

It was the choice between more than eight thousand wines from the four corners of the world. Luca Gardini, best world sommelier in 2010, chose the Portuguese wine for "its extreme elegance and personality yet respecting tradition”.

Gardini, a renowned wine expert, considers the Port Quinta do Noval Vintage Nacional harvest 2003 a unique wine in the world, such honour goes to the producer Quinta do Noval, that retains it has one of the jewels of the Douro region.

This Port Vintage has resisted filoxera, a bug that by the end of the 17th century killed the vineyards in the
Douro banks, never ever being exerted this wine has preserved the identity of a nation.

There will be only produced a mere three thousand bottles of this wines, making it a “venblen goods”. The demand is much higher that the offer so the prices go sky high for each bottle. Each bottle can vary from €500 up to €1000 and it is a good investment because this Vintage can easily last more than 50 years in the bottles, passing from a young exuberant with Douro region wild aromas to a more mature Port wine.
Enjoy it.
