Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2011
Volles und kräftiges Rot. Duft nach reifen schwarzen Kirschen, Gewürzen und Vanille, im Gaumen kraftvoller Auftakt, dicht, gut strukturiert mit grossem Körper. Aromen von Lakritze, Veilchen und reifen Früchten (Feigen, Datteln), langanhaltend im Finale. Braucht in der Jugend Belüftung um seine grossartige Tiefe und Kraft zu zeigen - Ein Bilderbuch- Ripasso.
Quinta do Vesuvio is the most spectacular Quinta in the Douro valley. Located in the wild and serenely beautiful eastern reaches of the Upper Douro valley, 120 kilometres east of Oporto and 45 kilometres from the Spanish border, Quinta do Vesuvio stands alone both in terms of remoteness and sheer grandeur.
External Reviews for Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port
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.
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.
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. Tasted May 2013. 92-94+ Neal Martins Wine Journal.
