Quinta Do Crasto, dark and delicious!

wineName of Wine – Quinta Do Crasto

Type of Wine – Port

Region – Late Bottled Vintage

Description – Dessert, rich and warming

Aroma – Intense and concentrated, vinous with plummy fruit

Body – Full and complex

Taste – Rich

Food – This port wine pairs very well with fine chocolate. Buy the best from a specialized chocolate maker. Choose a rich textured dark chocolate and then begin to enjoy. First of all eyeball your chocolate. Observe the colour and note the texture. Your chocolate should be shiny, smooth and free of scratches, bubbles or swirling. Next inhale your chocolate. Pinch a piece of your chocolate between your thumb and index finger to warm it. Now hold it to your nose and sniff it. Look for floral scents, herbal aromas, coffee or tobacco. Now snap off a piece of your chocolate between your teeth. It should make a definite clicking sound. Finally it is time to taste your chocolate. Put it on your tongue and let it melt. Wait for the flavours and savour it.
