A huge Port!

  • Nose:

    A very complex bouquet: lots of rancio, roasted and cigar box aromas, with hints of wood and honey.

  • Palate:

    A very powerful and complex mouthfeel with a palate made of fruity wood that evokes dried fruits (apricot and Damascus plum, tobacco)

  • Colour:

    A tawny/copper colour with amber notes.

  • Finish:

    The texture is remarkably velvety and the aromatic persistence impressive

Andresen Distillery :

From the arid lands of the Douro, which endure scorching summers and harsh winters, sumptuous wines are born, so different from each other that the discovery is inexhaustible.

History of the House :

Joao Henrique Andresen was born on 29 January 1826 on the North Sea island of Fohr.
At the age of 14, like many Danes, he embarked on a sailing ship.
Porto, his first destination, would be his last.
He fell in love with the city and decided to adopt Portuguese nationality, thus starting a new life.
Already in 1845, this enterprising young man founded the Port House that still bears his name.

The Estate Andresen

La maison Andresen a été établie en 1845 à Vila Nova da Gaia par Jann Hinrich Andresen, un jeune danois. Jusqu'au début de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, la maison prospérait. Cependant, confrontés à la crise économique, en 1942, les héritiers ont cédé l'entreprise familiale à Albino Pereira dos Santos. Figure emblématique dans le monde des vins de Porto, il a insufflé une nouvelle énergie à cette marque centenaire. Andresen est réputée pour l'excellence de ses portos Tawny et Colheita, ainsi que pour ses portos blancs millésimés.

The Estate Sottimano

Rino Sottimano took over the estate in 1975. His son Andrea joined him in 1994 along with Elena and Claudia. The vineyard is located in the heart of the superb Barbaresco terroirs and the Cotta, Currà, Fausoni, Pajorè and Basarin crus and now covers 18 hectares. The vines are cultivated organically with the utmost respect for the terroir. The wines are aged in barrels according to Burgundy principles (not in tuns). The wines are neither filtered nor fined. The production of the estate is gradually joining the best references of the region with prices still very reasonable considering the growing reputation of the estate. Quote from Rino Sottimano: "I always believe that every great wine is the result of serious, conscientious and passionate work in the vineyards. This is why, from day one, I have always tried to avoid all chemical products and herbicides, to preserve the natural balance of our soils."
