Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla Albacea 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

From the seemingly exotic climate and unique soil of the Jumilla region comes a wine bursting with rich fruit flavors and luscious aromas of sweet and exotic spices. The deep violet color and long, well balanced tannins add to the enjoyment of the wine. Despite its name you can't go wrong with Wrongo Dongo. The wine has plenty of stuffing to hold its own with the heartiest of roasts, steaks and barbeque, yet the forward fruit flavors lends the wine to lighter dishes as well as simply enjoying it on its own with friends. Dongo to the party without it!

Juan Gil winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, in the north hillside De Cerezo which belongs to the property. This mountain, which is covered in trees, shelters the back of the installations, the rest is surrounded by vineyards. In this shady place, the cellar is protected from the heat of the area. The uneven land is also adapted to the needs in order to prevent damaging the good quality of the grapes. The installations are designed by the winery staff, trying to combine the most modern technologies with the traditional and familiar winemaking processes. They are provided with authomatic systems which can obtain all the information to have traceability of the whole bottling process -not only elaboration but also internal changes- from the vineyards to the customers. The processing capacity of the winery is three and a half million kg of grapes. All the buldings are air-conditioned. The aging cellar has a capacity of 3000 oak casks. The laboratory equipment is ready to carry out all the necessary quality controls to guarantee the consumers`health. Read less

I love the fruity aroma, then it has dark berries on the tongue with oaky tannins on the finish. Very nice. Will definately buy this again!

Very berry nose, fruity but not too sweet. Better with food.

You can't buy a better wine for under $10. Surprising good both on its own and with food. This is my "go to" wine for drinking day-in and day-out.

Every time I buy this wine I am amazed it costs less than $10. Truly a great buy. And a very cool name and label!

I had this wine with dinner last night at a tapas restaurant. Fruity and light, and not very tart. Not the most complex wine, but it was enjoyable.
