Winemaking:
This is the Quinta do Vesuvio premium wine. The grapes are transported to the Quinta do Sol winery where, after rigorous double selection (by bunch and by berry), they are lifted in a hopper and literally dropped into the fermentation tanks using a ingenious gravity system. A portable crusher at the mouth of the tank gently pops the berries, just enough to release the juice, contributing to a soft, silky texture in the wine. After some three weeks on the skins the wines were run off into the malolactic tanks and eventually transferred into new 400 litre barrels of French oak where they spent approximately thirteen months. After a final selection just a few thousand bottles were filled.

94 pts Robert Parker - It presents a deep red colour. Its aroma is intense and complex, which dominates plum, cassis, resin, cedar and cloves and nutmeg. It is still highlight aromas of violet and some chocolate, always in perfect harmony with discreet wood, well integrated and excellent quality. In the mouth reveals great elegance, being remarkable its volume, balanced acidity, excellent quality tannins and black fruit aromas, spices and floral. Very long and great harmony.
