SALE! Yes, this is 750ml bottle. We got a great deal. 

La Bota de Fino nº 85 “Un fino que va para amontillado…” has been sourced from the oldest fino solera in Pérez Barquero’s Bodega Los Amigos: a total of 63 butts located in third row, of which we had the privilege to choose 15 that represent the current state of the solera. Seeking a distinctive character we opted for those butts that most clearly showed an incipient amontillamiento while preserving the fino character—as proved by its alcoholic content: 16%.

Telltale notes of early stages of amontillamiento, as well as the concentration of aromas and flavors, evidence its notable age—estimated ca. 12-14 years. But there is no question this is still a fino, aged under a fragile layer of flor that time has darkened, weakened, and partly torn into patches. In many respects this wine offers a striking conceptual resemblance to EQUIPO NAVAZOS’ La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada, but at the same time retains a distinctive personality all its own.

La Bota de Fino (Amontillado) number 85 is a fascinating wine, deep and elegant, as well as exceptionally versatile on the dinner table. Taken from the casks in October 2018 and bottled in December 2018, unfined and virtually unfiltered, its beautiful golden color is the one it exhibits straight from the butt.

The wine itself is sourced from the oldest Fino solera at the bodega Los Amigos owned by Bodegas Pérez Barquero. From a total of 63 barrels a Bin sorted in threes, they selected 15 which they considered to be most representative. The estimated average age is 12-14 years – younger than the previous selections, but obviously at this point the layer of flor is weak and not as white as in younger wines.
