Deep garnet red in colour. The bouquet shows exceptional freshness. Floral aromas of roses and rockrose with a hint of vanilla in the background witnessing well integrated oak. Very expressive on the palate with succulent black plum and wild berry flavours. Well-structured with concentration and elegance in perfect harmony. Polished tannins underpin the framework of this very ‘gastronomic’ wine.

Founded by the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, Quinta do Vesuvio is one of the great Douro estates. It has a total area of 326 hectares, of which 133 hectares are planted with vines. The rest has been conserved in its natural state. The property has great variations in altitude, from 130m at the riverside to 530m at the top of the ridge. It has vineyards that face north, south, east and west, providing a remarkable range of conditions. Being so far inland, only 30k from Spain. Dona Antónia bottled the first known single estate wine in the Douro in 1868. When our family acquired the property in 1989, we decided to resurrect Vesuvio as a single estate, rather than amalgamating its grapes under a port brand like most Quintas. Since then, our sole objective has been to create outstanding wines, both Vintage Ports and Douro DOC wines, using only the very best grapes on the property.
