Descendientes de José Palacios are Alvaro and his nephew Ricardo Perez Palacios. Before Alvaro went on to to found his winery in Priorat making such classic wines as 'L'Ermita' and 'Finca Dofi', he had thought of founding his winery in Bierzo. In 1998 he realised this dream convinced the region was ripe to make some of Spain's best and most important wines, and along with Ricardo Perez set out to find the regions finest old vineyards.
'Faraona' is a Mencia based blend picked from vines in a zone were the vines struggle to ripen. It is a wine that shows a lot of minerality and complexity. It is beautifully textured, has great balance and length. It changes in the glass showing the full range of it's complexity showing red fruit, herbs, spice and earthiness. Only 555 bottles of this remarkable wine were produced.
