The Castaño family has 410 hectares of vineyards in Yecla in south eastern Spain. They have steadily improved quality over the last few years and modernised their style. They symbolise the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude and transformed into robustly modern wines. This Monastrell wine is deep, cherry red in colour, with attractive perfumes of spiced plums giving way to flavours of plum, redcurrant and persimmon supported by soft, rounded tannins. Rounded and soft through to the spicy finish.

Tintige Farbe mir schwarzer Mitte. Zimtkirschen und süsser Tabak in der pflaumigen Nase, auch Nelken und Heidelbeeren. Saftiger Auftakt mit reifen Tanninen und samtiger Textur, Speckpflaumen und Brombeergelee, typische Monastrell-Wärme und Lebkuchen bis ins zartcremige Finale.
