Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2005
95 pts CellarTracker - It has a superb inky black colour. The nose is brimming with strong notes of violets and wild spring flowers. The taste is long, complex and rich, with layers of flavours that persist on the palate. Blueberry and blackcurrant flavours combine with rich bitter-chocolate and add structure. A seamless vintage port, with perfect integration and a velvet like texture on the palate.

Winemaking:
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, under 3,000 cases of the 1994 Vesuvio Vintage were released, less than one fifth of the production of the estate in 1994.

Grape Varieties:
Old Vines

Tasting Notes:
It has a superb inky black colour. The nose is brimming with strong notes of violets and wild spring flowers. The taste is long, complex and rich, with layers of flavours that persist on the palate. Blueberry and blackcurrant flavours combine with rich bitter-chocolate and add structure. A seamless vintage port, with perfect integration and a velvet like texture on the palate.

Store and Serve Advices:
Store the bottle horizontally in a dark place with constant temperature, ideally between 12ºC and 15ºC.

Food Pairing:
Quinta do Vesuvio 2005 will surely make any lunch or dinner a memorable one. It is a fabulous accompaniment to chocolate desserts, such as chocolate pudding, but can also be enjoyed on its own - it is an experience in itself.

94 points - Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2005

Pure sweet aromatic fruit on the nose: raspberry and blackberry. Very sweet, bright and pure with lovely tannic structure.

18 points - Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2005

Austere and vigorous, chemist and something closed, note that it's a vintage that needs basement. Full in the mouth, tannins well covered, it presents high-quality fruit and a large tuning set. An excellent representative of this statement.

93 points - Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2005

As ever, Vesuvio is packed with its generous, opulent ripe fruit, showing richness, dense flavors, layers of jam and sweetness with a hint of caramel flavors. This is a Port for indulgence, ripe, rich and packed with flavor.
