Due to its time in contact with oxygen, Alfonso shows a golden amber colour. On the nose, round intense aromas with the nuttiness of the Palomino variety standing out, in this case hazelnuts and walnuts. As a result of the time spent in cask, Alfonso shows subtle aromas of oak and spiced notes which remind of truffle or leather. On the palate, flavourful and structured with a long and complex aftertaste and slight vanilla touches with a surprising sweet note on the finish.
