91 Points A brooding nose of sullen blackberries and earth presages a wine that shows wonderful balance between fruit, alcohol, acidity and tannin. It's not a huge, extracted Port, but one that carries itself with grace, finishing with good length and soft tannins. Drink 2010–2030.

Very dark ruby color. The Touriga Nacional’s tiny yields brought great concentration to the wine, while the Touriga Franca created wines of great elegance. Concentrated berry aromasare equally present on the palate with a rich spicy finish. Excellent structure and aging potential.

Quinta do Vesuvio 2001 is a fabulous accompaniment to chocolate desserts, such as flourless chocolate cake or dark chocolate truffles, but can also be enjoyed on its own - it is an experience in itself. Port is best served in classic Port wine glassware or white wine glasses. Avoid cordialor liqueur glasses as they are too small to fully appreciate the wine’s aromas. Winemaker Description.
