  • Palate: Fresh, very tasty, sweet and intense, with a silky mid-palate. Good tannins yet to be polished and correct acidity. Long finish with a fruity aftertaste.

CURIOSITIES

Álvaro Palacios, promoter of the Priorat and author of such unique wines as L'Ermita or Finca Dofí, is committed here to the expression of the most "Atlantic" terroir of Castile, El Bierzo, and to the Mencía grape. Together with his nephew, Ricardo Pérez, he has signed up for biodynamic viticulture and is producing some of the most important wines ever made in Spain. Descendants of J. Palacios is the name of the company they have formed, in homage to Álvaro's father and Ricardo's grandfather.
