Quinta do Vesuvio Description

Quinta do Vesuvio is located in one of the most privileged areas of the Douro Superior and produces about 600 pipes from some of the oldest mono varietal plantings in the Douro. All the Port made at the Quinta is foot trodden in lagares. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers.

"Saturated ruby-purple. Superripe, primal aromas of black raspberry, maple syrup and dark chocolate; very sweet but also highly aromatic. Lush, chewy, very sweet and rich, with outstanding depth of black fruit and spice flavor. Hugely rich and ripe but not over the top. Serious, ripe tannins are currently covered by baby fat, making this very broad, thick, slightly spirity wine deceptively approachable now." - International Wine Cellar
