2003 Quinta do Vesuvio

Sold Out

Magnificent and remote, far up the river, Quinta de Vesuvio has an allure all of its own. Its wine, entirely foot-trodden in granite lagares, has all the unity of purpose and clarity of execution that one would expect form a Single Quinta. For me it is the hauntingly distinctive aromas of violets which mark it out, followed on the palate by a wealth of berry fruits, firm but unobtrusive tannins and a long satisfying finish. Drink 2010-2025.
