Why Buy Me

Alvaro Palacios is from the original family of Rioja wine producers. He has now established his own winery in Priorat and this winery with his nephew, Ricardo Perez, in Bierzo. This wine comes from 60-year-old vines.

Winemaker's Pitch

An intensely concentrated wine full of red plums, cherries and spice with hints of violets. The palate is very fruity and ripe with red cherry, plum with touches of dark chocolate and minerality. A long, velvety finish.

"The palate was vibrant, with acid strawberry flavors. It is very immediate, approachable, round and juicy"
