Save $2.00 (20%)
This wine is made from grapes from organic vineyards in accordance with the rules of the European Union and the United States. The vines are planted on limestone soils without irrigation and with very poor yields, rainfall does not exceed 300 mm annual and it helps to obtain top quality grapes without adding any pesticides. It exhibits great aromatic complexity, richness, and length. This mouth-filling Monastrell over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 4 years. FOOD PAIRINGS: Rice, pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses.
Wine SpectatorSmoky, herbal and earthy notes frame modest cherry fruit flavors in this lean, firm red, focused by light, firm tannins and crisp acidity. A bit rustic, but fresh. Drink now through 2020. 18,000 cases made.
