Ramos Pinto was established in 1880 and holds the largest proportion of vineyards in the Douro Valley, in relation to their production.
Aged in 30% French oak casks for 13 months, this is a smooth and expressive wine with aromas of damp earth, spices and a hint of tangerine. Soft tannins and great length.
“This fresh, full-bodied red shows focus, with firm, integrated tannins guiding the plum, wild raspberry and sandalwood flavors underscored by graphite, pepper and spice accents. Aromas of tea and underbrush add detail to the long finish.” – 90pts, Gillian Sciaretta, Wine Spectator, November 2017
Portuguese red wine from Douro Portugal, made with Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta da Barca, Tinta Barroca, Sousão, Tinto Cão and Tinta Amarela.
Ramos Pinto was established in 1880 by brothers Adriano and Antonio. It was acquired by Champagne house Louis Roederer in 1990, whose investments have seen the company return to its former glory. Holding the largest proportion of vineyards in the Douro Valley, in relation to their production, they produce only wine and Port with grapes from their own estates.
Vineyards & Winemaking
The 187 hectares of vineyards are located in the Alto Corgo and Douro Superior. Four quintas (or estates) make up Ramos Pinto’s holdings; Quinta do Bom Retiro, Quinta de Ervamoira, Quinta de Urtiga, and Quinta do Bons Ares. Although winemaking processes have been modernised, the traditional foot treading of grapes looks set to continue.
Alongside a classic range including White, Ruby, Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, Aged Tawny and Vintage they also produce Lágrima, Collector Reserva and Duas Quintas White, Reserva White, Red, Reserva Especial, and Reserva Red. Some single Quinta are also made; Quinta de Ervamoira 10-Year Tawny and Vintage, and Quinta do Bom Retiro 20-year Tawny being some of the most renown.
