Ramos Pinto's Quinta de Ervamoira parcels are located at the heart of Douro winegrowing region, planted to schist soils at very low altitudes, within a hot and dry mesoclime that's ideal for the torrid Spanish varietals. At a slightly higher altitude, planted to more granitic soils are the Quinta dos Bons Ares vines, where grapes can slowly ripen and concentrate their flavours, under the influence of fresh prevailing winds which contribute great vitality and intensity to the fruit. Duas Quintas is an assemblage of components from slightly differing terroirs and microclimates, careful assemblage of all parts is central to achieving a compex, fruit driven yet masculine red wine.
Dark ruby red colour. Bouquets are floral and exciting, intense and fruity, strawberries and blackberry with hints of toasty vanilla. Rich and concentrated palate showing plum, leather and spice, with intense coffee/ espresso notes. A delicious, spiced an savoury red wine with solid fruit character, the finish is decidedly tannic, velvety and long. Breathing before service unlocks wonderful expressions.
