It has varietal character and classical notes of freshly cut grass, peach, quince and straw and a super balanced palate with great freshness and clean flavours with very good delineation. It's varietal and comes through as a great example of the potential of the grape and the place.

The 2020 Quinta Apolonia shows open, expressive, ripe without excess and with a varietal nose. In 2020 they introduced a mechanical sorting, and that might have increased the purity and precision of the wines. Elegant toasty aromas with mineral notes and spicy fruit. Delicious mouth filling and toasty with mature and exotic fruit working in harmony with the oak. Good acidity and expressivity. Long and persistent.

Castilla y Leon is a region in northwestern Spain that is known for producing some of the finest wines in the country. The region has a long and rich history of winemaking, dating back to the Roman era. Today, Castilla y Leon is home to a number of top-quality wineries that produce a wide range of wines, from crisp whites to full-bodied reds.

One of the most famous wineries in Castilla y Leon is Bodegas Vega Sicilia. Founded in 1864, this historic winery is known for producing some of the finest red wines in Spain. The winery's flagship wine, the Vega Sicilia Unico, is a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that is aged for at least 10 years before release. The result is a complex and elegant wine with notes of black fruit, leather, and tobacco.

Another top winery in Castilla y Leon is Bodegas Emilio Moro. This family-owned winery has been producing wine in the region for over 120 years. The winery is known for its full-bodied red wines, which are made from the Tempranillo grape. The Emilio Moro Malleolus is a particularly noteworthy wine, with its intense aromas of black fruit, vanilla, and spice.

In addition to these well-known wineries, Castilla y Leon is also home to a number of up-and-coming producers. One such producer is Bodegas Mauro, which was founded in 1978. This winery is known for its modern approach to winemaking, which involves using new oak barrels and carefully controlling the fermentation process. The result is a range of wines that are rich and full-bodied, with notes of black fruit, chocolate, and coffee.

Overall, Castilla y Leon is a region that is rich in history and tradition when it comes to winemaking. Whether you are looking for a classic red wine from a historic winery or a modern, innovative wine from an up-and-coming producer, you are sure to find something to suit your tastes in this region.
