Ramos Pinto 1983 Vintage Port

This wine has a lively, young, vibrant color. Notes of blackberry, currant, cherry, raspberry, black plum, jam, and a mixture of fruit slowly reappear, giving the wine complexity and presence.

On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with lively, ripe fruit and vigorous tannins allowing for a great capacity for aging. The finish is long lasting and intense.This wine is best served after standing upright for at least two hours and decant.

Ramos Pinto Port Wines are prepared in the vinification centre of Quinta do Bom Retiro. In the case of LBV and Vintage, the grapes are trodden in the traditional lagar as this age-old technique allows for the juice of the fruit to be extracted more efficiently and less violently. After having concluded the first steps of vinification, the wines are transported to the historical wine cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia, where they undergo a long ageing process.
