There are very few wines on the market with a history as august as that of this amontillado. Only 100 bottles of Versos, drawn from a barrel gifted to Don Manuel Barbadillo on his birth in 1891 and packaged in a hand-stitched leather box, will ever be sold. This venerable wine is almost painfully intense, with rich flavours of cocoa nibs, smoke, salted nuts and incense, enlivened by a bright streak of lime cordial. To be sipped meditatively while pondering how much the world has changed since this wine was created.
