Colección Roberto Amillo Amontillado
Este sensacional Amontillado ha sido seleccionado personalmente por Roberto Amillo de una solera muy antigua de la bodega Hidalgo La Gitana en Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Proviene de dos botas, un tonel de 600 litros y otro de 1.000 litros que han estado casi intactos durante casi 40 años.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
This is an exceptional NV Amontillado sourced from a very old solera from La Gitana in Sanlúcar. It is from only two botas, a 600-liter and a 1,000-liter tonel that have been mostly untouched for almost 40 years. The nose had some reductive notes, akin to phosphorous, struck matchstick, low tide and rusty iron. This is possibly a combination of the soils where the vines grow and the time in bottle, so it might welcome decanting or time in the glass. It feels a little hard in the nose. The palate is very saline and vertical, tremendously sapid, a wine that was sharpened by time under flor and which might seem a little extreme to some. Austere, mineral, enigmatic. 1,000 half-liter bottles were filled in 2011. - Luis Gutiérrez.
A very focused, rich and slightly creamy amontillado that has a very intense build of rich, smooth wood and cocoa-powder flavors with toasty rancio to close. Very rich. Very good. Drink now.
