Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port is an impressive, mouthfilling port with ample tannic dimension and ""grip"". Its intense fruit character, classic ""blackstrap"" quality and full, voluminous finish are balanced by an elegance of structure in the classic Fonseca style. Though ready to consume when bottled, Fonseca L.B.V. will improve with a few years bottle age. As the wine undergoes minimum treatment prior to bottling, if not drunk soon after purchase, it will begin to throw a deposit and thus require decanting. It should be stored lying down, as any fine wine, and is best consumed within two weeks after uncorking.
