Quinta do Vesuvio is known to be THE premium estate in the Douro Valley, only producing the wines in outstanding years. As a result the name is synonymous with fantastic quality and rarity. Until recently only Vintage Port was produced at this mythical Quinta, however we are now lucky enough to be able to try the estates super premium red wine.
It lives up to Vesuvio's reputation wonderfully and is absolutely spectacular, giving many of the long established French Chateaux competition to take seriously. Being from the hot dry Douro region, this is a dark concentrated wine showing prominent notes of dark fruits and dark chocolate along with the Touriga Nacional's signature floral violet quality which brings the wine a lovely freshness. There is also a great savoury touch and slight cedar wood softness from the oak aging which adds wonderful complexity to this great wine.
