Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego Sherry

Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego Sherry

100% Palomino. In a region devoted to tradition, there is no more traditional bodega than Sherry’s most historic house, Valdespino. For Amontillado Tio Diego, the wine is protected by flor for its first ten years in the solera but, as the flor begins to weaken, the wine begins to gently oxidize over an additional five years of aging. This extended aging under flor is unique, and yields an Amontillado whose oxidative character is much softer and more integrated than lesser amontillados. It is a wine of soaring complexity and depth, but with a silkiness that is nearly unique in the category.. Valdespino is often called the "the Romanee-Conti of Jerez" and we absolutely agree which is why we love having their wines in stock. We are huge fans of their sherries and we believe the sherry category, in general, should be more shown more love.

Tasting Notes
"The NV Tio Diego Amontillado Palomino from the Macharnudo vineyard, is fermented in botas, aged biologically for 10 years under flor in a solera separated from Inocente, and with a further five years of oxidative aging. It has a beautiful, perfumed nose of dry flowers, very elegant and clean, subtle, with some saline notes, both in the nose and the palate, where it is balanced, medium-bodied and elegant. A very fine Amontillado, showing superb value for a 15-year-old wine." - Luis Gutierrez
