Overview of the Wine
Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto rapidly became noted, at the time, for its innovative and enterprising strategy. Associated with quality bottled wines, it began operating on the Brazilian market in the early 20th century and quickly became responsible for half of the wine exported to South America, whilst it was still conquering generations of loyal customers in Portugal and Europe. These were the natural results of a forward thinking strategy, based on the modernisation of selection, batching and ageing circuits, and the special care which Adriano Ramos Pinto devoted to the packaging and promotion of his wines.

Aware that the quality of its wines were confined to the earth of the wine producing Douro, Casa Ramos Pinto meticulously studied this Demarcated Region, and eventually became the owners of a number of estates with very special characteristics. The objective was to ensure the control and quality of the whole production process. By perfecting its wines, Ramos Pinto created unique nectars with its own signature.

In 1990, Casa Ramos Pinto became part of the Roederer Group, whose history has identical characteristics. The qualities that gave fame to Casa Ramos Pinto now took on an international dimension.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A very intense color, opaque with beautiful violet tones. An elegant and complex aroma. Rock-rose and eucalyptus stand out, along with ripe fruit such as strawberry and blackberry, chocolate and balsamic hints of cedar. Full of fruit, fresh and velvety, one can taste red fruits, smoot, flavorful tannins and an outstanding persistence.

99 Points - Ian Blackburn
Lets face it, Port wine needs a few heros - and this wine is up to the challenge. Absolutely mind boggling expression: espresso, carmel, chocolate, sweet wood roasting at campfire, lavish, lengthy, and optimal at 20 years of age. Color is 14.75/15, Aroma 25/25, Body 24.75/25 and Overall is 34.5/35
