Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Pronounced “Es-peck-tuckle dell Mont-sunt.” Located in so-called armpit of Spain’s prestigious wine country principally because of its rustic quality. I read the wine is called “Spectacle” because it showed the wine world its natural potential was detracted by lack of literacy & operating capital. Intense fruit nose with sweet spice. Palate is somewhat tight & heavy with black fruits, sweet cacao & pepper spice. Big tannins, well balanced with lingering finesse, ending with a jolt of spice. Tasting Sample. Needs time or decanting!
