Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage Porto 2009 tasting notes and review
The Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage Porto 2009 is a wine that knows how to seduce with great elegance, thanks to a compact body, lots of nifty scents and good tannins.
Casa Ramos Pinto is a historic Port producer, born in the late 1800s and since then the production has always been impeccable.
The Port in question is a small masterpiece for its typicality, complexity and aromatic rigor. You will find great balance and thickness in this Ruby Port, all supported by a tannic texture of considerable finesse.
And it is precisely around these resolute tannins that elegance and a chiseled structure develop, which knows when to turn to the savory and when to show character. The sweetness is well balanced and makes the wine pleasant, but never cloying, thanks to a very incisive rhythm.
Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage Porto 2009 bouquet
Classic, mysterious nose with violets, chocolate, plums, and more balsamic returns, but the whole is well integrated into a very clean aromatic framework. Delicious spicy finish with earthy returns in the background, long finish with licorice.

In the mouth it amazes for intensity and firmness: the sweetness is caressing and accompanies the whole sip, thanks to tannins and vivacity that form a perfect amalgam. It does not have a monumental structure, but drinkability is guaranteed. Amazing balance: the wine is ready now but ic could age for 10-20 years more in the bottle.
