1992 Vesuvio

Post by Axel P » 23:01 Wed 07 Nov 2007

If you would ask me to decide between the split declaration years 91&92 at Vesuvio, I would take 92 every day a week and twice on Sunday.

The wine is much more present with a very nice, but not too deep red colour. In the nose I experienced a flowery bouquet with tobacco and coffee. In the mouth this wine becomes a pleaser: smooth with a delicious sweetness. Fairly long and pleasant aftertaste. I don't think that it will get better from here on, but it will hold this stadium for another few years. Very elegant.
