Tasting Notes

The wine is rich, dark and concentrated; it has aromas of violets and “esteva” (rock rose) and is very smooth and elegant on the palate. The 1995 Vesuvio will rank as one of the Quinta’s finest Vintages.  All the wine made at Vesuvio was trodden by foot in the Quinta’s ancient lagares.

2007 tasting note year

Vibrant, bright purple hardly showing any age at all.  Ripe figgy nose with hints of cherry and plum.   Soft and supple on the palate with good spicy lift in the finish.  Developing flavours even at this age with ever growing complexity.  Wine of contrasting characters of maturity and youth. Fresh and lively yet super mellow characteristics as well. Delightful now yet lots still to show.

Score: Silver Medal
