    Petalos, the latest triumph from Alvaro Palacios

    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.

    • 93+ Points Robert Parker, Jan 2022
    • 92 Points Decanter, Aug 2021: "In its combination of violet floral-fragrant prettiness, silkiness of texture and the slight crunchiness of blackcurrant fruit with graphite, Alvaro Palacios’ entry-level Bierzo Mencía invites comparisons with Malbec and Cabernet Franc at their most graceful. However, it’s very much its own compulsively drinkable thing."

    Food Pairing: Perfect with a thick, grilled steak, charcuterie, hamburger or even grilled sausages. 

    STORY BEHIND THE WINE

    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.
    The reds from Bierzo are not light, easy-drinking wines; nor are they overpowering in their intensity. They are somewhere in between, which makes them excellent food wines!
