2014 Ramos Pinto Noir LBV
2014 Ramos Pinto Noir LBV Lively, deep, and concentrated color, yet rather opaque. This wine features a young aroma of red fruits where the first impact is of black plum, cherry, and red currant. The bouquet in this 2014 vintage is found in perfect harmony with hints of rose and black pepper. This wine stands out due to its freshness and balance, with notes of cedar, eucalyptus, and red fruit that deliver notorious complexity in the mouth. Silky tannins and a long finish.
Goes well with game dishes, red meat, cheese soufflé, Serra cheese or other fatty cheeses and chocolate desserts.
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 modernization 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.
