Palacio Quemado La Zarcita 2010
This wine reflects the terroir of the Palacio Quemado estate—a blend of varieties (well adapted to the climate) grown in the La Zarcita plot with mainly chalky soils and different orientations, each one harvested at their optimum maturity, bringing their character to this unique wine. Palacio Quemado La Zarcita 2010 was aged eight months in new 500-liter French oak from the Allier, Nevers, and Vosges forests.
Tempranillo, Garnacha, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and other local grapes. Produced and bottled by Vinya de Alange. Bodegas Palacio Quemado is a joint venture created in 1999 by Bodegas Alvear (founded in 1729) and the Losada Serra family (Vinya de Alange) in Extremadura. Following the dynamics of the work ethics and experience acquired over the centuries by Bodegas Alvear and after searching exhaustively for the best possible soils in which to nurture their premium wines, they came across the Palacio Quemado estate, which turned out to be the perfect place for making their range of fine wines. The winery has 230 acres of 16-year-old vines, 50% are tempranillo and the rest are other varieties well adapted to the area: garnacha, syrah, petit verdot, and local grapes.
