Aged following an oxidative ageing for 12 years in Bodega La Campana in Jerez de la Frontera.
Dark bronze colour with golden rim. Pungent nutty aromas with a smoky wood background. Rich flavours of bitter chocolate, walnuts and baked chestnuts. This Oloroso wine has an intense, concentrated aftertaste, lightened by a tangy acidity.

"In spite of the massive tarte-tatin character in the nose, this is mouth-filling but bone dry and powerful with a rather silky finish for a dry Oloroso (which tends to bitterness and austerity)."

"If you are looking for a dry sherry made in a slightly more oxidized style, the non-vintage Dry Oloroso Don Nuno Solera Reserva is your choice. Again, a nuttiness (in this case, walnuts) intermixed with a hint of Chinese black tea combine with salty, caramelized flavors make for a delicious glass of sherry."

"Toffee and baked brown sugar aromas provide a nice opening in this wine. It's fresh and fearless, with popping acidity and layered flavors. Salty dried apricot and orange notes end with dashes of brine and pecan."
Wine Spectator: 91 points
"A range of salty mineral flavors melds with dried fruit notes and hints of caramel in this Oloroso, a wine of poise and delicacy that transforms its tough structure and marked acidity into silken grace. Aged for 12 years in botas. Perfect for sea urchin sashimi."
