Quinta do Pinto Estate Collection Tinto

Availability: In stock

Deep garnet colour with violet hints.  Intense aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and coconut, in harmony with spicy notes. On the palate, a display of delicate fruit that is elegant and round with fine but firm tannins - a beautifully structured wine. The finish is intense, austere and persistent.

More information:

Situated at Merceana, in the heart of the Lisbon Wine Region, Quinta do Anjo extends over 250 acres, surrounding a 17thC manor house adjacent to a cellar of traditional outline.

More than half of the property has already been planted with vineyards, accommodating the nearly two dozen varieties that provide the basis for the ‘business cards’ of the house - the wines 'Vinhas do Lasso', 'Terras do Anjo', 'Qta do Pinto' and ‘Quinta do Pinto – Grande Escolha’. In the remaining area, preference will be given to Portuguese varieties.

Legend has it that the wine produced here two centuries ago, being so outstanding in the region, was worth more Pintos, the gold coin in circulation during the reign of John V. The property’s wine still became famous in European courts. In addition, a Mr. Pinto was once a charismatic foreman of the property, well versed in viticulture and enology and, since then, the estate has been referred in the region as 'the Pinto'. A happy coincidence, Pinto is also the last surname of the present owners. 'Quinta do Pinto’ thus became the name of their wine project and also of one of the wines they proudly produce.
