"BEST BUY - Vesuvio is a grand quinta just upriver from the Cachao da Valeira, a waterfall, now dammed, that separates the Cima Corgo from the Douro Superior. Pombal is the quinta's less ambitious wine, and it's a beauty in 2011, the dense blanket of its ripe flavors needing a day of air to lift, revealing scents of game, herbs and schist. The layers and depths of the wine feel cool, lasting on a breath of schist minerality."

The grapes are hand picked and transported in 20 Kg boxes to the winery, where vinification takes place in gravity flow fermenters. After going through a rigorous triage process, including bunch and berry selection, the berries are transferred to the fermentation tanks and delicately crushed. After inoculation with selected yeast, fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation is induced with a frozen culture of lactic acid bacteria prior to aging in barrel. The wine is aged 12 months in 400 liter French oak barrels.
