FEATURES
SCALE Sweet

Fondillón is a sweet-style wine made from 100% monastrell, from the region of Alicante. Made in a rancio-style (dried grapes, oxidative qualities), aged in large casks for a minimum of 10 years. 

An historic wine, that was once more highly valued than Sauternes, but its production virtually disappeared when phylloxera reached the region and devastated its vineyards.

Some bodegas survived and still maintained some small soleras. Bodega Brotons/Culebrón is a ‘try before you die’ wine.
