£11.95 – Porto Ferreira Ruby has an intense and well defined ruby hue, showing the quality of the selected wines. Its intense aroma is reminiscent of very ripe fruit, fine-tuned through its careful ageing in wood as well as through the blending carried out during its natural ageing process. Full-bodied and rich, it has a fine balance between its sweetness and its tannin structure, giving it unique characteristics and a fine and attractive long finish.

Wine Making
Vinyard Wine Maker Vinification
Porto Ferreira Ruby is a classic Ruby Porto Wine, an attractive and rich wine with the genuine flavour of the best
wines produced in the Douro region with all the care and know-how acquired throughout more than 250 years of
excellence that established Ferreira as leading quality winemakers and the number one brand in Portugal.
Luís Sottomayor Porto Ferreira Ruby is vinified using the traditional Porto Wine method. Hand-picked grapes are softly
crushed and, after partial stalk-removal, fermented with maceration allowing the best components of the
grape skins to be extracted. The whole process takes place under strict control of both temperature and wine
density, making it possible for the winemaker to choose the ideal moment for the addition of wine alcohol,
fundamental to halt fermentation and keep Porto Wine natural sweetness. That moment depends on vine
varieties, stage of maturation and final sweetness levels required.
Ageing
After the vintage, the wine stays in the Douro, where the Winter cold helps lees to settle. The following
Spring, the wines are transferred to the traditional company lodges at V.N.Gaia and stored in oak casks,

where they will age for some years. During ageing, the wines are monitored and tasted by the oenology
team, which selects the wines and supervises the blending so as to reach the final wine, with the character
and style of Porto Ferreira Ruby. The final blend has an average age of about 3 years.
