Quinta da Romaneira Tawny 10 years Porto
Pale brick red tawny color. In its complex aroma, the vibrant young fruit blends deliciously with the attractive and characteristic dry fruits aromas like nuts. Rich and smooth on the palate it has an elegant structure and a long finish.
A group of private investors, passionate about the Douro, acquired the property in 2004. The management was entrusted to the recognized team of Christian Seely and Antonio Agrellos, responsible since 1993 for the renaissance of that other great property in the Douro, Quinta do Noval. Seely and Agrellos have together been responsible for some of the greatest Vintage Ports to be produced in the Douro, and have also been pioneers in the production of unfortified red wines in the Douro. Christian Seely’s long years of experience in the management of Chateau Pichon Baron and Petit Village in Bordeaux have contributed to the success of these Douro red wines. With Christian Seely as managing director and shareholder, and Antonio Agrellos as consultant oenologist, Romaneira has already since 2004 produced a series of excellent Vintage Ports (2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2011). But the real revolution at Quinta da Romaneira manifested itself above all in the production of unfortified red wines of outstanding quality, as well as whites and Roses. The stimulus to the burgeoning Douro Revolution dates from 2004.
The success of our wines on the National and International stage would not have been possible without the arduous work carried out in the improvement of the vineyard, undertaken with the objective of exploiting the potential of our terroir to its maximum. The old vines have been carefully tended and brought to the fullness of their potential. A large program of replantation of the vineyards throughout the property has also been undertaken, contributing in this way to the enlargement of the expression of the distinct microclimates and terroirs of the Quinta.
