Duas Quintas Reservas Douro Tinto DOC
Ramos Pinto were the original pioneers of quality winemaking in the Douro, a legacy that lives on today and has been adopted throughout the region. Duas Quintas gets its name from the two estates the fruit is grown for the wines –Quinta de Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares. The wines really showcase the best that the Douro has to offer, full-bodied, full of fresh fruit (mixed berries, plums) with excellent tannins that provide structure and a long finish.
Harvesting and sorting is by hand, into small boxes. Vinification of the Ervamoiragrapes was done in granite lagares, whilst the Bons Ares grapes were vinified in wooden and in concrete vats. For 18 months, it was aged in large oak vats, new and one-year-old French oak barrels. Bottled May 2020.
Clear, brilliant colour with a dense, concentrated appearance. A rich, mature, subtle and smoked nose with aromas reminiscent of red plums, figs, peaches and blackberries. The tannin structure is both powerful and smooth, promising excellent ageing potential. This really is the Douro Superior in all its splendour.
