Bodegas Del Pino Classico Pedro Ximenez D.O. (500ml) (Montilla-Moriles, Spain) "...chocolate, caramel, spice..."
Bodegas Del Pino is located in Montalban de Cordoba in the Montilla-Moriles DO in Southern Spain. Manuel del Pino Cañete founded the company in 1935 with the aim of producing Pedro Ximénez sweet wine. Pedro Ximenez is grown here with a distinct future and a long journey from grape to bottle. Generally once the crop is harvested, it is laid out in the sun to gain natural sugars through extra ripening. Once the grapes have reached raisin status they are pressed a number of times to extract the sweet nectar. Lengthy time in barrel allow the Pedro Ximenez to gain more body, a mellow roundness and step closer to the end customer.
Currently Hijos de Manuel del Pino S.L., is among the most important companies in Spain in the development of the aforementioned wine, in addition to having expanded its range to other generous wines.
