After fermentation, Amontillado matures under a layer of yeast called ‘flor’ for more than 8 years. During aging, as the flor gradually dies out, oxidative processes slowly become dominant and Tio Diego continues for an additional 8 years of ageing before bottling. The nose is dominated by aromas of hazelnut, earth, dried fruit interwoven with threads of coffee, caramel and tobacco. The unique fusion of different aging techniques makes this Amontillado an almost magical wine.

  • Meat risotto
  • Mushrooms
  • Truffles
  • Asparagus
