Quinta do Vesuvio

95/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018
The 2016 Tinto (Quinta do Vesúvio), the Estate red, is a blend of 56% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca and a dollop of Tinta Amarela aged for 18 months in French oak (80% new). It comes in at 14% alcohol. If you're comparing the high end from Symington-related labels this issue, this is very different from the Chryseia (under Prats & Symington). Here, you get a more muscular and concentrated wine. Here, there is more of an edge and a need for cellaring. Packed with plums and black cherries, it also has a darker and much richer flavor profile#there's a relatively warm feel here#than Chryseia, less elegance but more intensity in terms of both structure and fruit. To me, this sumptuous red is the better wine with a higher upside potential, although it certainly has some things to prove in the cellar. Some six hours later, it was still a little aggressive but just packed with fruit and flavor. This needs a few years (at least) to come arou

Die Reben gedeihen auf rund 450 Metern über Meer. Erlesenes, florales Bouquet, Rosen, rote Waldbeeren, Pflaumen, schwarze Kirschen, komplexe erdig-schiefrige Nuancen. Am Gaumen sehr kompakt, wunderbar muskulös, strukturiert, präsentes, seidenes Tannin und fantastisch lang anhaltend. Ein ausdrucksstarker, äusserst charaktervoller Rotwein aus Portugal.
