Toro Albala Don Px Convento Seleccion Montilla-Moriles 1955

Toro Albala is one of the most esteemed wineries in Montilla-Moriles and when they release older vintages of their PX wines there typically is not enough to match the demand. Montilla-Moriles is located just outside of Cordoba and is where most of the Pedro Ximenez (PX) is grown in Spain. It's also by happenstance the original home of Edgar Allen Poe's most infamous drink, Amontillado. . .A-Montill-ado. . .which literally translates into "in the style of Montilla". But even though the region makes dry wines from the PX grape that are very similar to its brethern Jerez, it has become famous for the singular intensity and richness of old, sweet PX. "It has a nose and palate of chocolate-covered candied orange, spices, molasses. I'd say the dominant aromas in the nose are dark chocolate. It's very dense, developing notes of very concentrated licorice and balsamic, mint, camphor and evolving notes of petrol with time. Complex, rare and unique." 98 points Wine Advocate
