A 2007 vintage wine from Casa Ferreirinha. The world class 2007 Casa Ferreirinha Especial is only the 16th edition of Reserva Especial since its was first released in 1960. Reserva Especial is an iconic Douro red wine. Only released by Casa Ferreirinha in years where, after ageing, bottling and regular tasting and consideration, it is finally not deemed to be a Barca Velha (Portugal’s most iconic and expensive red wine) by Casa Ferreirinha’s Chief Winemaker Luís Sottomayor.

Reserva Especial is a magnificent, mature red wine from the Douro, classic in style, complex, rich and charismatic. It was created more than 50 years ago, and remains one of the main pillars upon which the reputation of Casa Ferreirinha rests. It has few peers. Casa Ferreirnha was the first company to make fine, unfortified Douro wines, and today is still one of the main standard-bearers for the region around the world. This wine is made only in exceptional years. A total of only 16 vintages have been declared.

Reserva Especial 2007 is intensely coloured, almost opaque. Its delightful aroma is equally intense, reminiscent of really ripe red fruits and black plums. Spices such as cinnamon and clove, balsamic of cedar, tobacco box and "sous-bois" are also evident, allied with very well integrated notes from the barrel ageing. This is a wine of excellent structure, firm tannins of great quality, balanced by good acidity. The great intensity and complexity of this wine give an extremely long finish.
