Quinta do Vesuvio 2001

Release Notes

Very dark ruby colour. The Touriga Nacional’s tiny yields brought great concentration to the wine, while the Touriga Franca, due to the good weather during the harvest, achieved perfect ripening, creating wines of great elegance. The Tinta Barroca was very ripe at the time of picking, with a higher than average baumé, producing wines of excellent structure and ageing potential. The old plantings of Tinta Roriz had lower than normal yields in 2001, giving wines with a typical concentration of berry fruit aromas.

Tasting Notes

Michael Schuster critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2007 tasting note year

Inky purple; dense, minerally, refined nose; elegant, middleweight wine with a fine tannin; aroma rather than fruit-rich, but attractively balanced and with good length. Similar in style to the '98, but without quite its projection of flavours; classic in the best sense, and likely to be solid and long-lasting.  Not the purity of a really fine vintage - perfect fruit marred by rain at vintage.  That said, this is very good.  2015-2030

Score: 17/20
