This is a small region within the Murcia province surrounded by Jumilla, Almansa and Alicante (of the Comunidad de Valenciana region). The wines are labeled and districted according to the quality of the grapes: Grapes from Yecla Campo Arriba are considered the best quality since the vines tend to be older. Yecla Campo Abajo, is considered inferior, but is nonetheless an enjoyable wine to sip on. 
 
The climate is Mediterranean shifting inland to continental, mostly very hot and dry. Monastrell (Mourvedre) is best suited for plantings under these conditions, with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah used in blends. Young wines are often made in the carbonic maceration style, like Beaujolais Nouveau. But fine barrel-aged wines, especially from the Arriba level grapes, can be found. 
 
White wines are made from Airen and Macabeo (Viura).

  • Castano Yecla Solanera 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting Spanish red blend of Monastrell (Mourvedre), Cab and Tintorera. Dark black fruits, plum, fig, a touch of something sweet that is wrapped up in some fairly drying tannins. Not overly complex but not bad for an inexpensive mid-week drinker. Read More
