Professional Wine Reviews for Barbadillo Oloroso Seco "Cuco"

Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Very harmonious. Full-bodied and noticeably sweet, with integrated chocolate and caramel, and a subtle balance. Turns dry on the superlong finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made.
Rated 89 by Wine Advocate
The NV Oloroso Cuco, produced from Palomino grapes from Gibalbin and Santa Lucia vineyards and aged oxidatively for 18 years in Sanlucar de Barrameda in topped up barrels, has a deep amber color, a nose of dried apricots, sweet cherries, is aromatic and expressive, it somehow brings to mind the nose of a Palo Cortado. The palate is warm, medium- to full-bodied, round and wide, unusually saline for an Oloroso. Very drinkable. It represents very good value and a good introduction to (elegant) Oloroso. Drink 2013-2015.

Additional Information on Barbadillo Oloroso Seco "Cuco"

Winery Barbadillo

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
