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. Often served either as an aperitif or with creamy cheeses, but it also goes very well with chocolate deserts and fruit tarts. Besides serving at room temperature, it is also very nice when served slightly chilled or with ice.
Wine AdvocateThe medium ruby-colored n.v. ruby port offers attractive, moderately sweet fruit, and good body and freshness. The Ferreira offerings reviewed in this segment are an uninspiring group of ports.
Wine EnthusiastThe simplest of the Ferreira range of Ports, but still a bright fresh red fruit-flavored wine with a smooth texture. Good raisins and very soft tannins.
