Barbeito Verdelho Madeira 1898

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely dried fruits on the nose with nuanced tones of maduro cigar and chocolate chip cookie. This smells friendly and round like a warm cup of Cafe au lait. In the mouth this is dark and date filled with a touch of austere tannins that counter the wine's touch of sweetness. The backend shows some quince and a lively touch of bitterness. 89pts

Vinhos Barbeito was founded in 1946 by Mario Barbeito de Vasconcelos and has since then always been run by members of our family. At the time of Barbeito's foundation over 30 other Madeira Wine exporters were operating in the business. Little by little, Mario Barbeito gained clients in many parts of the world, always trying to build a good and close relationship with them. Some of our actual clients and suppliers are still from his time. Mario Barbeito passed away in 1985 and his daughter Manuela de Vasconcelos, took over the general management of Vinhos Barbeito. She was already working for the company since 1976. One of Manuela Vasconcelos most important tasks was to continue her father's work of strenghthening relationships with customers and promoting our wines at prestigious wine fairs around the world. This policy is still maintained to this day. Read less
