Fino Macharnudo de Romate

One of the wonderful old wines given to me by Valerio Carrera, the man in charge of the superb wines at A’Barra.

I really like these old finos, their fine profile only seems to get more elegant with time, while they have enough flavour to survive the passing of the years. This one started a touch closed but then opened and had sapidity and bite, nutty flavours with a bitter under edge, and sharp salinity all the way through – fresh start and finish that just added to the impression of a wine that is far easier to drink than it is to find.
