Wine information: Ramos Pinto, Founded in 1880 by brothers Adriano and Antonio, has always had a pioneering spirit. In the early 20th century it became noted for its innovative and enterprising commercial strategies including the distinctive art nouveau advertising campaign. In 1990 Ramos Pinto became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and has since enjoyed significant investment and further improvements in quality. This wine combines the fresh, romantic spirit of the old Bom Retiro vines and the hot, sturdy ripeness of Quinta de Ervamoira. The grapes are selected and picked by hand into small containers, they are then vinified in granite tanks and stainless-steel vats. French oak barrels are used during malolactic fermentation. After that, 40% of the wine remained in barrels and the rest went to age in two and three-wine casks for 18 months. It is a mixed blend of predominantly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.

Tasting Notes: Ramos Pinto Collection is a dark red colour and garnet reflections. It has a surprising, expressive bouquet, starting with exotic aromas of spices and rock-rose that gradually turn into the sweet scents of ripe fruits, vanilla and cacao. On the palate, its attack is full of volume and freshness, showing its aromatic complexity. The wine has a long, elegant finish that associates a velvety structure with balanced acidity.

Reviews: Ramos Pinto Collection is good for serving with meals, as its acidity and expressiveness make it very elegant. It is particularly recommended it for braised, roast and grilled meats and strong cheeses.
