Delgado Zuleta Palo Cortado Monteagudo from Andalusia
Palo Cortado Monteagudo, this most sought-after wine combines the virtues of the most selected Amontillado and Oloroso wines. 100% Palomino, the wine starts its life with a period of biological Ageing (although shorter than for Amontillado wines) undergoing then oxidative Ageing. Aged for 10-12 years in American oak casks following the “Solera y Criaderas” procedures traditional to the D.O.
Andalusian Jerez/Xerez/Sherry Wine.
View: Bright amber in colour.
Nose: Powerful aromas of nuts, with almond and hazelnut as highlights, with secondary notes of walnuts and coffee and hints of wood.
Mouth: Very dry and complex, standing out with its amplitude and persistence. Smoother than an Amontillado but not as much as an Oloroso.

Ageing: 10-12 years of ageing following the traditional “Solera y Criaderas” system in American oak casks.
