The Quinta do Vesuvio 1997 has a dark and intense purple colour on the nose showing a luscious ripeness with rich floral aromas of gum cistus and hints of blackcurrant. On the palate the wine is extraordinarily rich and full-bodied, packed with layers of fruit and firm tannins, holding its richness all the way through to a long and concentrated finish.

A delicious, forward, dark saturated ruby/purple-colored port, this 1997 reveals copious quantities of jammy, grapy, black fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice, full body, and silky tannin. It should drink well soon, but last for two decades.
Clive Coates MW - "Very fine nose. Lovely fruit. Sophisticated and complex. Very classy. Fullish. Intense. Very ripe and concentrated... Very very long and lovely. This is really fine. From 2010." Score: 18/20
