- Quinta do Vesuvio is one of the great Quintas of the Douro. It's located in the Douro Superior (the wamer, drier section, up river from Pinhão, on the way to the Spanish border), 120 km east of Porto. The estate was developed in its current guise by António Bernardo Ferreira, who purchased it in 1823. His ambitions were such that this became the grandest Quinta of all in the Douro. António's son inherited the estate; his wife was the famous Dona Antónia, who was widowed shortly after and went on to develop a grand portfolio of Douro properties.
Really lovely aromatics: sweet and a bit fudgey, with warm roast red fruit. The palate is ripe, sweet and shows elegant fruit and a complex well rounded finish.
