5/5

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.
