Overview

As a testament to how excited Javie Revert and Pablo Calatayud are about the potential of Arcos (an ancient variety that has never been fully studied and which may be or be related to Moristel, yes another unstudied variety) is that it now makes up 60% of the blend in Parotet.  Arcos when ripe is fresh and floral, with a dark-fruit flavor that never veers towards overripeness. All qualities that match the peppery, spicy, and savory profile of Mandó.
