ALI JÓ is a muscat wine produced by Adega Cooperativa de Alijó, in the Douro wine region of Portugal.
The wine was made from the Moscatel Galego white grape variety and it has a beautiful medium amber color.
On the nose, the drink presents a typical floral aroma of the grape variety, with orange peel, ripe peach, and a slight touch of honey, resulting in a delicate mix.
On the palate, the wine has a light, fresh texture, with a hint of acidity and oaky flavors, ending in a sweet, smooth and balanced finish.
Vinification: the alcoholic fermentation takes place in self-vinification vats with temperature control and light maceration for 1-2 days to extract the aromas of the grape variety. The fermentation is then concluded in stainless steel vats, without the masses until the brandy is added. The aging stage is done partially in oak barrels for 1-2 years.
This medium-bodied wine has a high, 17% alcohol content.
Serve this wine fresh, as an aperitif at 8-12 °C or as a Digestive at 16-20 °C temperature. It is also a great accompaniment to desserts.
