Aspect: Mahogany and coppery hints.
Nose: Notes ofacetaldehydes, piquant, with marine aromas, reminiscent of fish markets, salted and smoked meat and fish, nuts and bitter almonds.
Palate: Extremely dry and salty, it is a long, complex wine, notably dry and persistent, which makes it a good accompaniment to a wide variety of food.
Lovely complex nose of marmalade, spice, dried fruits and lemons. The palate is lively and complex with brilliant citrus freshness under the nutty and herb notes. Brilliantly vibrant.
For all its gustative characteristics, amontillado is a wine which requires dishes of strong contrasts, such as pickles (gherkins, olives, aubergines in vinegar), salted fish (such as anchovies or cod), smoked fish (sturgeon, eel and tuna fish), caviar, herring and, of course, vinegar dominant dishes, such as pickled food and spicy dishes including those of oriental cuisine.
We recommend it be served lightly chilled (12-14º).
