Joao Portugal Ramos Vinho Tinto Reserva Vila Santa 2010

Joao Portugal Ramos Vinho Tinto Reserva Vila Santa 750ml 2010   
Sku: 1907801*

Vila Santa was Joao Portugal Ramos’s first wine. The name means “Holy Village, referring to the nearby ancient city of Estremoz where the famed Miracle of the Roses occurred. In the 13th century, Estremoz was ruled by King Diniz and his wife, Queen Isabel. Isabel was dedicated to helping the poor, but had to hide her generosity from her husband. One day, as Isabel was leaving the castle with an apron full of bread, Diniz appeared and asked to see what she was carrying. Isabel opened her apron, where the bread had miraculously been transformed into roses. Isabel continued her work free from suspicion and was canonized in 1625. The Vila Santa red blend marries Aragones, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After harvest, part of the yield is foot trodden in marble troughs, known as lagares, and the remainder is fermented in stainless steel tanks following a long post-fermentation maceration. The blend is aged for nine months in French oak barrels.

Food pairing
Pairs well with hunting birds (pheasant, quail, partridge), roasted or grilled meat, cheese, and delicatessen (foie gras, pate, prosciutto).
