Terrific aromas of berries and violets, with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine, silky tannins that build on the palate and caress the tongue. Outstanding concentration and harmony. Greatest Vesúvio this century. Best after 2010. (JS)
Highly recommended in 1998 and the same again this time round. It's deep and dark with lovely opulent aromas of plums, cherries and lifted blossom. It's rich and luxurious with dense, ripe, minty fruit with firm tannins to back it up. A wonderfully solid finish. Complete. (RM)
This has an ethereal nose, nice lift with secondary aromas beginning to come through, with blackberry leaf, dried orange peel, a touch of walnut and honey. Expressive, if a little too open-knit. There is a hint of glue just in the background but it does not get in the way. The palate is very well balance, quite suave with very fine tannins, with subtle hints of cloves, dried herbs and a touch of capsicum with elegant very supple finish. Excellent. Drink now-2035. Tasted November 2008. (NM, Wine Journal)
Dark blackish crimson. Rich and sumptuous. Chestnuts and super-round. Very pure and polished tannins. Lovely now. 17.5/20 points. (JR)
