El Tresillo was a card game that prior generations of the Hidalgo family used to play in the bodega.  Participants in this leisurely rite would sneak a taste or two from the solera before dealing each round, enough so that the solera eventually adopted the name of the game. Today it is one of Hidalgo’s oldest soleras, and its bottlings are considered a family treasure.
Rich mahogany in color, this sherry shows penetrating aromas of almond, brine, caramel and toasted bread. It is equally sensuous and rich on the palate.
Makes a superb pairing with almonds or preserved fruit, curried lentils and roasted pork or poultry.
