Descendientes de J. Palacios (Bierzo)
Product not available in United States
As it could not be otherwise, Ricardo Palacios - nephew of the famous winemaker Álvaro Palacios - continues to conquer with one of his best known and most accessible wines, Pétalos del Bierzo 2016. This organic wine from Bierzo is one of the most acclaimed wines from Spain and, vintage after vintage, knows how to defend its status as a wine blessed by Robert Parker thanks to its floral, soft character and excellent quality/price ratio.
If you still do not know why Pétalos del Bierzo 2016 is a wine that makes you fall in love, this is a new opportunity to do so, and, while you're doing it, discover its secret: a coupage dominated by Mencía from old vines grown on steep and rocky slate that gives it freshness, youth and depth at the same time.
In addition, the 2016 vintage premieres the image of the hand of Xano Armenter, a Catalan painter born in Las Palmas who has also been responsible for the previous labels, in which he prints his "expressive sensitivity and thought-out beauty".
