Casa Ramos Pinto was founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880. The Ramos Pinto Winery began operating on the Brazilian market in the early 20th century and became responsible for half of the wine exported to South America within a short amount of time. Casa Ramos Pinto believes the soil of the Douro region has much to do with the quality of their wines and therefore took ownership of a number of Douro based estates for their Ramos Pinto Vineyards. Casa Ramos Pinto enforces a strict self-production policy, meaning that all Casa Ramos Pinto wines are produced with grapes from their estates. Our Ramos Pinto wine reviews indicate the majority of their non-fortified as well as port wines are produced using Touriga Nacional, Aragonês, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão. Our Casa Ramos Pintos ratings reference their diverse portfolio from their value Bons Ares line of wines up to their premium Duas Quintas line. In 1990, Casa Ramos Pinto became part of the Roederer Group. To learn more about these wines check our Ramos Pintos online buying guide.
The wine is big, full, opulent and super-ripe. But the tannins are also there, giving a dark, brooding edge, which comes through powerfully on the finish. This is the best vintage yet from this Roederer-owned house. Imported by Maisons Marques & Domaines USA.
Dark in color, as befits a wine that was food trodden in open fermenters. To say it has a Port-like feel is to emphasize the wine’s concentration, the mellifluous tannins and the powerful black fruits. It needs several years aging.
Deep gold in color, this is a finely perfumed, toffee-rich wine, with a tannic edge, wood flavor, intense acidity and great concentration. It’s a great example of aged tawny, and it’s ready to drink now.
This powerful wine relies on flavors that go right to the core of impressive tannins and ripe black plums. The structure is dense, the fruit dry but still laced with spice and sweetness. A wine that needs many years of aging.
With its age, this has developed complexity and subtlety, very much a hallmark of the elegant Ramos-Pinto style. The wood flavors are evident, not quite dominant, leaving room for bitter orange and spice along with acidity that could come either from the aging or the fruit. The finish is properly long, fading gracefully.
Finely tannic, this is a solid wine, full of dark fruit skins, dry, dense and impressive in structure. It shows every sign of aging potential, from its solid tannins to its tight, red berry fruits and black fig flavors.
While a definite toast element has developed in this wine, it still has the rich, structured fruit—black currant and dark plum and licorice—and serious tannins that are still softening.
Aged for around 30 years in wood, this wine has gained the most delicious toffee character to go with the old gold feel and wood acidity. There is a lovely rounded character, so smooth as well as intense. The Port is bottled ready to drink.
