Deep red in colour with an intensely fruity aroma of ripe raspberries and a hint of chocolate. Elegant on the palate, with excellent body and power. Ripe tannins and a long, decadent, anise spiced finish.
Founded in 1880 by Adriano Ramos Pinto, this Port House has always had a pioneering spirit – from the distinctive and stylish ‘art nouveau’ advertising from the 1900s to the continuing wide ranging vineyard research with results that have benefited the whole port trade. Champagne Louis Roederer, now the majority shareholder, perpetuates this philosophy and ensures continuity in a company renowned for wine-making excellence.
Ramos Pinto holds the largest proportion of vineyards in relation to its production, giving it a high degree of control over viticultural methods and harvest timing. The house tends 187 hectares of prime vineyards in the Alto Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the famed Douro region, the mountainous valley formed by the Douro River and its tributaries.
Harvested by hand, the grapes are crushed by foot in “lagares”. Fermentation lasted around three to five days. It was aged in Vila Nova de Gaia, in casks 15,000 litre casks. The 2017 LBV is a traditional vintage style Port, without any hot or cold treatment and is also unfiltered.
