Sweet aromas and flavors of butterscotch, hazelnuts, caramel and spice are balanced by acidity. The silky, smooth structure ends on a slightly smoky note.
This Sherry is named after the Montilla region of Spain, where the style originated in the 18th century. Beginning as a fino, it is fortified to approximately 17.5% alcohol. Darker than a Fino but lighter than an Oloroso, Amontillados must age in barrel for a minimum of five years.
