Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 



99 Poinrz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Very fresh, it also has luscious fruit, vivid fruit flavor, and big power underneath. It coats the palate but its best feature is the delightfully juicy finish. It's delicious, long, and kind of spectacular.  The combination of lots of fruit, lots of power, and endless flavor to go with the endless finish mean that this is a rather stunning follow-up to recent vintages.”

Cellar Selection

“The structure of this wine is dense in tannins that balance the opulent black fruits. The sweeter style of the wine is balanced by the ripeness of the blackberry fruits freshened by the fine acidity.” 

96 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This offers of a lovely mix of raspberry, black currant, plum, and fig pâte de fruit notes, which stretch out slowly over a ramrod straight graphite spine.  Bramble, anise, and apple wood details are tucked in neatly on the finish, giving this a compact feel for now, but everything is in place for a long, steady maturation in the cellar. Shows a pleasant, dry edge to the finish.”

95 Pointz James Suckling

“Finished aromas of crushed berry, graphite, and stone. Full body, very sweet with a tangy almost sweet and sour character. Distinct flavors of dried oranges and dark berries. Medium tannin structure. Very ripe yet fresh.”

94 Pointz Wine & Spirits

“Sweet and sleek, with a black-mushroom savor, 2017 is a fat and happy vintage for Vesuvio. This is a modern Vintage Porto, with a refinement and ease to its purple-plum-and-bitter-chocolate richness, the alcohol beautifully integrated into the wine.”

“It’s lifted and aromatic on the nose with a touch of green leaf and ginger and a wild, herbal edge. The palate’s not especially big, and has lovely freshness all the way through with fine-grained, peppery tannins, showing near-perfect purity and leading to a long, linear finish. Should be approachable early but this will also last the course.”
