The title was well deserved after being named by Parker as the best Spanish wine considering its characteristics and price, and remains one of the most prominent to this day.

One of its secrets is the variety from which it is made, the Mencía, which It is characterized by being amiable, easy to drink and gastronomic. Without a doubt, the success of Petalos del Bierzo 2017 is also due to the fact that the Palacios family - a name that always harks at quality, know-how and success in wine -is responsible for its production

5 /5

It is one of the best wines in Spain and also has a very attractive price. For me it is one of the wines of reference, that kind of wine that I always have in mind when I have guests at home or when I'm a guest in someone's home. How lucky to have a red wine with the quality seal Palacios at such a reasonable price! It is an indispensable wine in all wineries.
