The most noble grapes of the island, allied to the better and longer ripeness, with the most delicate extraction of the must, combined with a one year stage in new oak wooden barrels results in this exquisite liquorish wine. To the eye it presents itself as straw-yellowed and with abundant "tears".
The aroma is powerful, with notes of ripe fruit and honey. In the mouth it is hot, then progressing to round, plump and sweet tactile sensations, somewhat vanilic.
ANGELICA - The name "Angelica" is a regionalism that designates a type of sweet liquorish wine very appreciated in the archipelago of the Azores and beyond.
Angelica is obtained through the use of sugary musts of Portuguese wines and alcohol, and later bottled according to traditional processes, perfected over the years, after a stage in Portuguese oak barrels.
Its golden straw color, unique flavor and aromas made Angelica a presence at the tables of great wine lovers. Similar to, to a certain extent, the famous Jeropiga of Portugal, the Angelica of the Azores was considered a "drink of the Gods" because of its unique production and being so difficult to find.
