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. It is a meticulous selection of the best vintage grapes from Quinta de Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares that is used to produce this wine. Its vinification is made vineyard-by-vineyard and variety-by-variety. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 18 months in new oak casks. It is then bottled at Bons Ares, where it matures for one year. The 2000 is a blend of Touriga Nacional (2/3) and Tinta Barroca (1/3). Is bottled in the year following the harvest and and is aged at lease two years in the bottle prior to release.

Tasting Notes: Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas Reserva has an intense red colour but showing signs of maturity with a brownish rim. The nose is intense and expressive. It is resinous and peppery, offering very ripe red fruit aromas, such as plum and blackberry with a background of vanilla from oak ageing. Fine, clean and quite intense on the palate. From the beginning, ripe fruit, typical of the Douro, very soft and flavoursome can be noticed. A good acidity gives a perfect balance in the mouth. Excellent harmony between fruit and tannins. Full bodied, velvety, it is very flavoursome and quite persistent.

Food & Wine match: Try with meats and game in general and particularly well with sausages and dishes with garlic.
