Description

Ramos Pinto Tawny Reserva Adriano NV

Ramos Pinto Tawny Reserva Adriano NV is the wine of the founder of Casa Ramos Pinto.

A tawny port with a red core and an orange meniscus. Opens with a dense and complex nose of cherry, blackberry, dried plums, walnuts and a hint of balsamic. The smooth palate has a perfect balance between freshness and age. Fresh fruit attack that is elegant, gradual and intense. Blackberry and dried plum fruit flavours mingle with layers of caramel, chocolate, cinnamon and nuts, closing with a peppery tone from its maturity.

Made from a combination of Portuguese grapes: Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Touriga Franca. Adriano is a six-year-old blend. After six or seven years, the red pigmentation of the Port wine begins to accelerate and tawny nuances start to appear. Ages in oak barrels for 7 years in cellar. 

Fun Fact: This wine conquered Brazil to such an extent that Port wine became known only as “Adriano”. It is very pleasant and versatile.
