Pétalos del Bierzo 2013

Having tried and 2 previous vintages of the Pétalos del Bierzo, and still not be a close friend of Parker's opinion, I dare say that it is these wines that feeling purchases to save money, so rich is and how little it costs.
If you have not tried the Mencia, the ideal place to discover wine. If you've tried. . . Pétalos del Bierzo sure you've drunk. Bless you! :)

It is one of the best wines in Spain and also has a very attractive price. For me it is one of the wines of reference, that kind of wine that I always have in mind when I have guests at home or when I'm a guest in someone's home. How lucky to have a red wine with the quality seal Palacios at such a reasonable price! It is an indispensable wine in all wineries.
