Alvaro Palacios, Finca Dofí, Priorat, Spain 2015

Alvaro Palacios: ‘Dofí is the history of my life in Priorat.’ A clear expression of Garnacha: . ‘Garnacha is a musical, joyful variety with its orange fruit.’

Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofí 2015 is grown on brown slate. Deep purple with pink rim. Impressively powerful, with a burst of black fruits, fresh, well-balanced, with a refined texture.  A rasp of tannin gives structure, and a burst of juice explodes on the finish. An edge of liquorice and wild herbs to the finish.  Very long, very fresh.

Alc 14.5%
