Jammy, ripe and rich from the great 2016 Vintage, destined for greatness.. Deep and rich with dark berry fruits with layers of spice, dried herbs, licorice and creamy oak, yet retains that signature freshness. This is a powerful and firmly structured por
Quinta do Vesuvio is one of the last estates to still use the traditional method of foot treading the grapes in granite lagares. Ports from Vesuvio always have a purity of fresh, ripe berry fruits which I always really enjoy. Their 2016 port is deep and rich with dark berry fruits with layers of spice, dried herbs, licorice and creamy oak, yet retains that signature freshness. This is a powerful and firmly structured port also destined for greatness. 97 points--Wine Spectator
Quinta do Vesuvio is undoubtedly one of the great estates in the Douro Valley of Portugal, consistently delivering some of the finest port wines in this legendary location. Located in the northern part of the Douro Valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All grapes are carefully selected and hand-harvested. Grapes are tread in the old-fashioned way in large granite lagars, some of the largest in the Douro Valley. This port comes from a single quinta (estate), one of the few offered. Enjoy with Stilton and similar cheeses, berry deserts, or alone.
