Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port  Reviews

98 Pointz Wine Spectator

“An elegant style, full of well-spiced, juicy flavors of raspberry, boysenberry, and blueberry that extend with lively acidity and well-integrated tannins. Unctuous and succulent on the finish, which oozes with molten chocolate. Best after 2025.”

96 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“Red and black berries bring out the richness of the year, masking the seriously tannic structure. The wine has great spice, richness, and a dark, smoky core of powerful tannins. For long-term aging, but delicious now.”

95 Pointz James Suckling

“Aromas of flowers and berries with hints of dried fruits. Full body, medium sweet with solid tannins and a powerful palate. This goes on for minutes. Extremely well-made. 1,250 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Better in 2022.”

94 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Bright, deep ruby. Knockout perfume nose combines blackberry, blueberry, licorice, and violet, conveying an impression of sweetness and energy. Savory and gripping on the palate, with a primary sweetness to the fresh black cherry and dark berry flavors. Wonderfully smooth already and very rich and long on the aftertaste. Will rely as much on its sound acidity as on its well-integrated tannins for longevity.”

94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The 2011 Quinta do Vesuvio has a primal bouquet with heady scents of macerated dark cherries, boysenberry jam, and a slight fug of alcohol that should be integrated by the time of bottling. The palate is very rounded with sweet ripe tannins, plenty of raisin-tinged black fruit, and delicate touches of cracked black pepper and shaved ginger on the cohesive finish. This is a superb Quinta do Vesuvio.”

90 Pointz Wine & Spirits

“This grand quinta on the south bank of the Douro, a vast vineyard developed by António Bernardo Ferreira in the 1820s, has been under restoration by the Symingtons since they purchased the property in 1989. The 2011 is a hedonist’s Port, a blend of fruit off new plantings and mature vines (an average of 35 years old). It’s heady with bright blueberry flavor, jasmine scents, and dusty schist tannins. The wine’s warm burn lasts, surrounded in fruit flavor, integrated into a voluptuous texture. This will likely reach its peak around 15 years from the vintage.”
