Perica Oro has scored 92 points and according to him it is a wine “concentrated, mature-berry character, generous tannins and a discreet hint of sweetness that make this an appealing wine with along, fresh finish.”

While, the 6cepas6 red wine has been awarded with 91 points and Suckling has defines as a wine with a lot of fruit ”red cherries and blackberries, leading to some red plums on the palate. Slippery, fleshy and silky through the finish. A little mocha to close.”

Some wines, which according to this wine guru, have a good body and are fresh and balanced.These good scores in reports like this, so prestigious in the world of wine, are the result of the daily work of Bodegas Perica, both in the field and in the winery.
