From that moment onward, Ramon did not stop making improvements. It was in the early 80s when he bought the first bottling plant. During the 90's, participation in trade fairs, tastings, and market research trips began with the full incorporation of his three sons: Ramon, Juan Pedro, and Daniel. It was during this period that the recognition and appreciation, both national and internationally, arrived. The courage and determination of a man deeply rooted began to bear fruit. The development of Bodegas Castano is unstoppable, and the improvements are never-ending. The most recent of these was completed in 2002 with the construction of state-of-the-art storage premises: completely air-conditioned, with a new cooling chamber. Read less

(65% monastrell, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 20% tintorera; this special cuvee includes the oldest monastrell vines of the producer) Bright medium ruby. Smoky black raspberry, black cherry and roast coffee aromas. Then sweet and dense but rather suave in the mouth, with complex flavors of plum, coffee, olive and Provencal herbs. Has the underlying sweetness of material to support its firm tannins. The crop level for this cuvee was just 18 hectoliters per hectare, according to the American importer, and the wine was done entirely in French oak.

The 2007 Solanera is a blend of 60% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouschet) raised in 500-liter French oak. Dark ruby-colored with a brooding, smoky black and blue fruit bouquet, on the palate it is dense, rich, and mouth-filling. This outstanding value over-delivers in a big way.

Opaque purple. Powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry, blueberry, dried flowers, incense and minerals. Deep but lively, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a sexy violet pastille quality. Supple tannins gain strength with air and add grip to an impressively sweet, persistent finish. Very energetic and delicious right now.

The 2004 Solanera is a blend of 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Tintorera raised in French oak. More complex than its siblings, this purple-colored wine offers fragrant aromas of spice box, smoke, blueberry pie and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, the wine is plush and full-flavored with enough structure to support several years of additional bottle age. It should drink well for 8ndash;10 years.
