Dark ruby-red in colour. The bouquet shows ripe black raspberry, pepper and cinnamon aromas matched with a violet floral note. Very concentrated on the palate with sweet flavours of black currant, raspberry, and a meaty, mineral nuance. Vibrant acidity gives way to the intense fruit while maintaining an overall balance to the long and robust finish.

Great-grandfather, Manuel Francisco Ramilo, who, in the early twentieth century, devoted much of its land area to wine production. Time and the hardness of the vineyard’s works in the region led the following generations to focus the family business on distribution and marketing of wines from other regions. Four generations later, unwilling to accept the abandonment of local traditions, brothers Pedro and Nuno Ramilo left their confortable lives to embrace a family business of four generations. The task was huge, but they had no doubts on the way to go. They strongly believed their future laid in their ancestors’ roots, hidden in the Lizandro River slopes and in the sandy properties of Colares, among the terraces and ancient stone walls of the old family vineyards. They rebuilt the family estates, saved old vines and planted new ones. The brothers are now on the verge of becoming the largest private producer of the world famous Ramisco from Colares.
