Garlic & Manchego Chicken

Pair with Amontillado

The Amontillado Sherries are a step up from the Finos; presenting similiar features but with more body and greater physicochemical development .This gives the Amontillados more structure but they remain delicate, mixing well with slightly richer dishes, such as white meats, from garlic chicken to quail with garlic and parsley.

Pairing Amontillado with food

Amontillado should be served at a temperature of between 12 and 14º C.

It is an ideal wine to accompany soups and consommés, white meat, blue fish (tuna), wild mushrooms and semi-cured cheeses.

It combines perfectly with vegetables such as asparagus and artichokes.
