Temperance, wisdom and style emerge in Fino Tres Palmas, a very old Tío Pepe which, after 10 years, still keeps some traces of yeast that magically interact with the wine. After long years of aging, Fino Tres Palmas shines through its green, copper and old gold reflections. On the nose, where the hints of wood claim a place of their own, the aromas of oak, toasted sugar and caramel are predominant. Strength and elegance are the main features on the palate, where everything ends in a salty, creamy finish.
