The Vesuvio property was bought by the Symington family in 1989 and we shipped their first released vintage, 1990. The estate is in the high reaches of the Douro Valley, just 45km from the Spanish border. This 2016 vintage is magnificent. Deeply coloured purple, the aromas recall garrigues, black olive, wild thyme and rich black fruit. This is a concentrated, densely packed wine, with lavish textures and harmonious acidity. This is a superb single estate wine (for drinking 2025-2045+).
