Capela do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2017 75cl
The Capela is a micro-terroir Vintage Port produced from three small vineyards at Quinta do Vesuvio – inspired by the incredibly low-yielding 90-year-old vines from the Vinha da Capela vineyard, which create Vintage Ports of extraordinary complexity and character.
This is an old-vine Port with two-thirds coming from ancient ones. Bark, black tea, crushed grapes and mahogany. Big and grippy. Old, traditional styled Port with incredible depth and power. Big yet polished tannins. This is foot-trodden. Co-fermented. Real deal.
