The wine

La Faraona is majestic, excellent, an extraordinary wine that makes us feel in complete awe of nature. It is a profound wine, brimming with mystery, and the experience of smelling and tasting it is almost mystical. Fortunate indeed are those who have the opportunity to try it.

Summary of Ricardo P. Palacios' evaluation of the 2016 vintage

2016 began mild and fairly rainy. It wasn't until the end of February that winter showed its true colours and brought some snow and frosts. April and May were problematic months as regards rainfall, which brought about a delay and an imbalance in the vegetative state of the vines.

Summer entered dry and rather warm on the Corullón slopes and the vines, as a late flowering crop, benefitted from these conditions, getting over the setbacks of the previous months.

September was a month of pleasant temperatures which prepared the way for a more tranquil harvest than the one in 2015. The grapes came through in a fine state of health and maturity, and harvesting was spread out over time, which allowed vinification to occur at a comfortable pace, safeguarding the freshness and the ethereal essence of a typically Atlantic vintage.

A new winery to join the Palacios dynasty (Palacios Remondo, in La Rioja), it extends to a total of 27 ha of vineyards scattered over nearly...
