Ramos Pinto has a rare advantage in the Douro Valley: it owns 90% of its vineyards, giving it high control over its grapes. This wine has a dark garnet colour with cherry highlights. It has a mature nose with plum and black cherry and hints of spices and wood. On the palate, it is soft and smooth with ripe fruit flavours. It has a graceful and elegant finish. This wine pairs well with Mediterranean dishes, poultry recipes, grilled red meat and cured sheep’s milk cheeses.
