NEW LOWER PRICE…WHAT A BARGAIN!....70% Garnacha and 30% Monastrell

"(fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for four months in new and used French oak barrels) Bright purple. Aromas of ripe dark berries and candied licorice are lifted by a zesty, peppery nuance. Smooth, broad and supple in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Finishes sweet and supple, featuring echoing blue fruit character and rounded tannins." (VM)

"A spicy red with blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry character. Some pepper notes, too. Full body and soft and juicy tannins that follow through to a long, fresh and fruity finish. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
From the vineyards of Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell varieties, located on calcareous soils, between 700 and 1000 meters above sea level, within the region of Almansa, we selected those who can design a unique wine that combines complexity, structure and intense color with the explosion of fruit and ease of consumption where you can enjoy the elegance on the nose and mouth, which shows a long and enveloping finish.
