Description

Quinta do Vesuvio is located in the heart of the Douro Superior, 120 kilometres from Portugal’s Atlantic coast and only 45 kilometres from the border with Spain. The Quinta’s special reputation for producing outstanding wines dates back to the nineteenth century, when the Viscount of Villa Maior wrote, “All this wine is made scrupulously and to perfection… this Quinta was made as if for princess…” Vesuvio has a total area of 326 hectares (806 acres), of which 137 hectares (339 acres) are planted with vines. The rest, almost two-thirds, has been conserved in its natural, wild state.

TASTING NOTES

Intense, deep red colour. Smoky, forest floor scents with resinous notes and hints of wild berry aromas. Taught and muscular on the palate, full and rounded with delicious ripened fruit. Shows red fruit flavours and mineral notes with a well-defined schist quality. A wine with an attractive gastronomic profile with a long and appealing aftertaste.
