Overview

With a few vintages of his Palomino Fino-based blend from Bierzo under his belt, the ever restless and curious Mario Rovira set out to better understand the historical vinification of this Andalusian grape variety. Teaming up with Bodegas Delgado Zuleta in Jerez, Mario created an experimental project of four botas of Palomino Fino, sourced from the albariza soils of the Pago de Balbaina, to better understand how to craft unfortified wines that develop under a layer of flor.  The result of this experiment is a Vino de la Tierra Cadiz called Tosca Cerrada.
