Quinta de Vesuvio Port 2016
Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley, and offered exclusively as a single Quinta Vintage Port. Classic, monumental wines with fabulous rich fruit character. Probably one of the best vintages of the 20th Century. General declaration. After a rigorous selection of the best lots, only 3.000 bottles were released and less than 1% of the production of the estate in 2016.
