At three years, Ramos-Pinto’s branded Adriano (named after the founder of the company) is at its best. This 2004 vintage is big-hearted, with bitter chocolate and blackberry fruits, as well as generous tannins. Good, dry structure and fresh acidity complete a rounded picture.
Initially ripe and spicy, there is also a stalky, black currant element to this fresh, fruity wine. It shows herbal character and acidity, which go well with the soft tannins and bright fruit flavors. An attractive wine, with a light, sweet finish.
