Consumer Reviews - Império Reserva 2001

Arnaud Steve  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Portugal
**** Very good 
The Bairrada region and its traditional grape variety Baga, sometimes compared to Piemonte Nebbiolo, makes wines often with a lot of acidity and dry tanins when young, but that you can keep in your cellar for years and that will show all their potential after 15 or 20 years. These characteristics make them hard to sell now, as the majority looks for fruity and sweet wines with soft tanins for drinking immediately.
This Império is from this old-school of Bairrada and it is pretty interesting. Good complexity in the nose, with mature fruit, lots of spices (peper) and a hint of leather, strong body but with great freshness, tanins already softened. A wines that begs for food, ideally traditional food like the Portuguese 'Cozido' (cabbage, potato, diferent kinds of pork meat, etc...)
