2016 Prieto Picudo Tinto "Gamonal" (Pardevalles, Bodegas)
Bodegas Pardevalles, Prieto Picudo Tinto "Gamonal", Tierra de Leon, Spain 2016100% Prieto Picudo BLACKBERRY, EARTHY SPICE & VANILLA, SUAVE RICHNESS The Alonso family handpicks this single vineyard wine before sending it underground to barrel age in their 300 year old cave winery. This is a rich, elegant expression of the rare Prieto Picudo, a grape whose thick skins and paucity of juice make for great intensity but also balance. In this reserve bottling, oak accentuates rather than masking the grape's unique personality and spice. Serving suggestion: The food of León is rich and rustic, and this is the wine to match. Smoky brisket, hearty beef stew, or maybe charcuterie board w/ an extra helping of bresola.
