The category "Generosos" or dry sherries covers the vast majority of sherries produced. They are the oldest and best-known: manzanilla, fino, oloroso, amontillado, and palo cortado. They are all made using palomino grapes.
Amontillado's color varies from topaz to amber. Its aroma is subtle and delicate, with notes of hazelnut, aromatic herbs, and black tobacco.
