2013 Ramos Pinto 'Dual Qunitas' Reserva Douro

$49.95

Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto rapidly became responsible for half of the wine exported to South America, while garnering generations of loyal customers throughout Europe. In 1990 the esteemed Portuguese winery became part of the Roederer Group and is now overseen by Frédéric Rouzaud, the great grandson of Camille Olry-Roederer. The name refers to the two Ramos Pinto Douro vineyards used for this blend. Quinta de Ervamoira sees hotter conditions, producing a richer, more concentrated fruit, while Quinta dos Bons lies at a higher altitude and produces grapes with a brighter, lighter profile. Produced from a blend of primarily Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca this is a nicely balanced selection. Deeply garnet in color and full-bodied, the Duas Quintas flaunts aromas of plump raspberries, baking spice, citrus blossom and violet. Beautifully structured with a nice backbone and stable tannins, this gorgeous wine is an amazing example of Duoro at its best.
