1996 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

SKU #500639
It is Peter and his son Charles Symington’s opinion that the 1996 is one of the finest Vintages ever produced at Vesuvio. The wine is deep purple and opaque in color with richly lifted floral aromas of violets and a massive flavor of blackcurrant fruit with firm tannins balanced with the usual Vesuvio sweetness.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 90
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Impressive. Dark purple in color, with lots of pretty plum, floral and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with very racy tannins and a long, long, fruity finish. Reserved, it needs time.
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. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers. Over the last decade, Quinta do Vesuvio has amassed an impressive number of awards at international tasting competitions around the world.
