A mosaic of aromas and colours

Cordula Alessandri

One day, while enjoying a glass of Boal, a pair of Belgians got a taste for madeira. They bought a collection of madeiras at auction and that was that – they were in the madeira trade. The idea was to come out with a new numbered collection each year to go with the old madeiras. As you would expect, the first Madeira Collection wine was “1”. Ever since Alessandri has created labels for each vintage in the unlimited Madeira Collection.
