Amontillado, Gama Monteagudo
The quintessence of biological aging. One glass of this wine summarizes the nearly 3 centuries of history of this winery. An experience which cannot be missed by any aficionado (see enthusiast).
Amontillado Monteagudo begins its life as a Manzanilla and therefore is biologically aged at first, but after losing the characteristic layer of flor, it passes through a second stage, and oxidative stage. 100% Palomino grape variety, with around 12 to 14 years of aging in American oak casks, using the traditional “Criaderas & Solera” system. It is available in bottles of 75 cl. and has an ABV of 18.5%.
Bright amber color, displays potent notes of dried fruit and wood, and outstanding notes of almond and hazelnut. On the palate it is very dry and complex, highlighted by its wide-ranging flavor and persistence.
Its complexity has solved some of sommeliers´ impossible pairings, like artichokes, and smoked or pickled products. A glass of Amontillado can turn a simple soup or consomme into an authentic gastronomic pleasure.
