Massandra Aleatico Red Port 1914
The Massandra Winery was founded in 1894 by Tsar Nicholas II on the outskirts of Yalta, on the Crimean Peninsula, and was the official supplier of fine wines to the royal family whilst they were on vacation at their summer palace in Livadia. Many of the sweet fortified wines from the Massandra Collection are exceptionally rare and incredibly long-lived, with most only reaching maturity at around 50 to 60 years of age. Aleatico is an unusual red grape variety imported to Crimea in the 1830s from Italy. It is believed to be a relative of Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains and produces the most delicate red dessert wine of Massandra.
