This is a choice wine, dry and full-bodied. As its name suggests it is very aromatic, with soothing glitters and scents of spices, noble woods and tobacco. It is classified as V.O.R.S. by the Regulatory Board, with 39 years of age.
It is most appropriate as an aperitif, served at room temperature. It matches to perfection with nuts, 'serrano' ham, beef and game.
"Given the age of the stocks (some more than 45 years old), this wine has amazing fruit presence. While Tradicion hones to a dry style for its wines, this bottling has a certain voluptuousness and fruitiness that's unusual in wines of this style. Youthful and complex, it deserves time and patience when you open the bottle, a wine of meditation, one to accompany late night conversations about changing the world."
