Vintage: NV (Solera started in 1948)
Region: Alicante, Spain
Viticulture: Sustainable
Grape Variety: 100% Monastrell

Primitivo Quiles Fondillón Solera 1948 is a dry wine made from Monastrell harvested at the end of October and beginning of November, allowing the grapes to raisin on the vine and produce an Amarone-like wine that is then aged solera style for many decades before it is released. Full-bodied, deep, and very suave, with plenty of Sherry-like nuttiness, beautiful balance, and outstanding length and grip on the focused and remarkably cool finish.

Song: Solera by Paco de Lucía

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Primitivo Quiles Fondillón Solera 1948

Primitivo Quiles Fondillón Solera 1948 is a dry wine made from Monastrell harvested at the end of October and beginning of November, allowing the grapes to raisin on the vine and produce an Amarone-like wine that is then aged solera style for many decades before it is released. The 1948 Fondillon is the current release of this singularly beautiful wine, and it delivers a stellar bouquet of nuts, raisins, orange zest, a touch of olive, salty soil tones, citrus peel, and dried cherries. On the palate. the wine is full-bodied, deep, and very suave, with plenty of Sherry-like nuttiness, beautiful balance, and outstanding length and grip on the focused and remarkably cool finish. This would be a great wine to serve with the cheese after the meal. Given its long exposure to oxygen prior to bottling, the wine will hold beautifully for months after it is opened and should prove to have a long cellaring life as well.
