The 2010 Reserve expresses the strength and complexity of the Douro Superior and the excellence and elegance of the wines of the Casa Ramos Pinto. The balance of the blend is achieved using wines originating from two Estates, Ervamoira and Bons Ares, located at a low (200m) and a high (600m) altitude and with schist and granite soils, respectively.
2010 was a good year in the Douro Superior, both in quality and in quantity. The vegetative cycle was delayed due to the low temperatures and rain during the spring. The relatively slow maturing was very positive. The high temperatures of late July and early August accelerated the maturation of some grape varieties but caused a block on maturation in part of the plots. As a result, it ended up being a very rigorous and selective harvest. The qualitative results are wines in which elegance stands out.
