Bodegas la Purisima Monastrell Yecla Old Hands 2006
100% Monastrell aged for four months in a combination of French and American Oak show off this regal variety. Monastrell (called Mourvedre in other parts of the world) is known for round, rich flavors and has been planted in the dry, wind-swept plateaus of Yecla for hundreds of years. This hand-picked wine comes from bush vines that are spaced far apart (usually over 2 meters) to allow for deep roots and dry farming. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine proudly supports Autism Research.
