Czech, a slavic language adopts (some) Latin (Latin-Romance) words: - Nové --> Nova/Novo (Latin, Esperanto, Portuguese), Nueva/Nuevo (Spanish). - Vino --> Vino (Spanish, Portuguese).

Not really. Correlation does not imply causation. ;)

Nový is derived from Proto-Slavic novъ, from Proto-Balto-Slavic nawjas, from Proto-Indo-European néwos.

And that explains why it's so similar to all of these languages you mentioned.
