Alvaro Palacios

Alvaro Palacios, La Faraona, Bierzo, Spain 2015

En primeur sample

From the glorious hillside 0.55ha vineyard which used to be half white varieties, half red, but has been grafted over. Alvaro Palacios La Faraona 2015 is full of the usual promise of the great wine that will be La Faraona, but it’s impossible to score fairly at this stage as the malolactic fermentation is not finished. Closed. Richly textured with a firm grip. Very promising.
