This is a wine for connoisseurs, bottled unfiltered in order to preserve its intense color and racy character. It can be enjoyed upon release, but its evolution in bottle will continue to delight consumers for quite a while, provided it is carefully stored. Some of us fondly remember bottles of this wine opened after 35 and 45 years of storage.
It performs best at temperatures ranging from 9/10º C, where it shows a lighter and fresher profile, to 13/14º C, where it fully displays its complex and rich aromatic range. On the table it is a most versatile wine: lamb sweetbreads al ajillo, red tuna sushi.
"The Navazos team selected 20 of Bodega Valdespino's oldest fino butts for the base of this wine, an addictive substance laden with humid aromas of the sea combinded with earthier, lighly mineral flavors. The cloud of aromas is sustained by briny acidity that penetrated the palate, while allowing fruitier notes of green apple and flowers to emerge. It's an orgy of sensations, of mineral and marine force, in a complex and profound Fino."
