Descendientes de Jose Palacios Petalos 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of my sure values, I thought the 2011 Pétalos could not be surpassed so I opened a bottle next to the 2012 Pétalos del Bierzo, and I was wrong. The 2012 is extremely aromatic, with flowery aromas of violets, lilies and roses, really fresh, with notes of red fruit (acid strawberries), no traces of oak whatsoever, subtle, really Burgundian with hints of blood oranges, denoting freshness. The medium-bodied palate is extremely balanced, elegant, round, with volume and incredible freshness. For a young, entry-level wine there is incredible complexity, developing notes of fennel and aromatic herbs, all of it very harmonious and subtle. For Ricardo there is a change to a cycle of Atlantic vintages (2012, 2013 and 2014 so far), but 2012 was a special vintage, shorter and dried, but at the same time fresh. This could very well be the best Pétalos ever, and I cannot recommend enough. 310,000 bottles of this prodigious wine were produced, showing you can do quantity and quality at the same time. Bravo!..93" WA 01/15

The nose was beautiful with lush pink floral notes, ripe peach and a spritz of minerals. On the palate, it was remarkably fresh and vibrant with hints of young strawberries and inner floral notes which lasted through the long and refreshing mineral-laden finish.

Sante Selections / Fruity sweet with balanced flavors. Light to medium bodied, structured, and never overpowering. Good with tiramisu, cream cheesecake, or other creamy desserts

PETALO Il Vino dell’Amore, the “wine of love,” adds an irresistibly romantic sparkle to any occasion. Produced by the Bottega family, this delicately sweet sparkling wine is crafted from Moscato grapes grown in northeast Italy’s Colli Euganei region, nestled between two fabled cities of love, Verona and Venice. Wild roses, like the one depicted on this bottle, grow among the Moscato vines in Colli Euganei and impart a pretty floral aroma to the grapes. This scent of roses subtly perfumes the wine, together with fragrant notes of peach and apple. PETALO is beautifully balanced on the palate, with fresh fruit flavors and fine, persistent bubbles. Whether the occasion is formal or impromptu, PETALO Il Vino dell’Amore is the perfect way to celebrate with family and friends. Country Italy, Colli Euganei, Veneto Production Grapes are hand-harvested and softly pressed in the winery. The sparkling wine is created in the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a short secondary fermentation in sealed tanks for 30 days. The wine is then promptly bottled and released. The platinum bottle protects the wine by any source of light, preserving its aroma and freshness. Bouquet Pronounced scent of roses, with hints of apricot and peach. Tasting Notes Pleasant and sweet with notes of candied apple and sweet peach. Lovely, persistent bubbles with a long lasting finish. Grape Varieties 100% Moscato Giallo Color Brilliant gold with a fine, persistent perlage Alcohol 6.5% Serving Suggestions An excellent choice for any celebration or occasion! Pairs well with lighter fare and a variety of desserts including custards, fruit tarts and chocolate desserts. Best enjoyed with the ones you love!

Petalo Il Vino dell'Amore - Luxuryweb.com/ Another Italian wine that complements chocolate very well is Petalo, Il vino dell’ Amore, a spumante Moscato dolce, from vineyards located between two cities celebrated for their lovers, Verona and Venice.

Perfect Pairings/ This sweet sparkling wine is the perfect Valentine's Day accompaniment. Its name, Il Vino dell'Amore, means "wine of love" and comes from the Colli Euganei region in northeastern Italy, located between two cities famous for their stories of amore, Venice and Verona. Made from Moscato Giallo grapes, the wine combines the scent of roses, which grows among the grape's vines, as well as hints of peach and apple.

Bold, floral aromas of rubbery red-berry fruits introduce a full, fresh, largely elegant palate that’s home to minerally, medicinal cherry, plum and berry flavors. Wood grain and resiny notes are apparent on the finish, which is long, driving, spicy and oaky.
