About Recaredo Serral del Vell
In addition to the award from La Semana Vitivinícola, Serral del Vell 2008 was recently rated by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and given a score of 94 out of 100. Luis Gutiérrez, the Parker guide sommelier, describes Serral del Vell 2008 as a “complex, compact, balanced and very fresh wine” and says it’s one of the best vintages of this sparkling wine.
The 2008 vintage is the first to be called Recaredo Serral del Vell. (It was previously known as Brut de Brut.) The new name is that of the estate which is the source of the grapes used to make this Brut Nature sparkling wine, which is aged for over eight years.
