The 2005 Carro is an unoaked blend of 50% Monastrell, 20% Tempranillo, 20% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Medium ruby-colored, it has a lovely perfume of damp earth, pepper, cassis, and blackberry. This is followed by a sumptuous wine with layers of ripe, sweet fruit, excellent balance, and no hard edges which totally belie its ridiculously silly price point. The wine is an awesome value. I had thoughts of a higher score but readers might think Irsquo;d lost my mind. The Bellum project, in which Ole Imports is involved, started in 2002. It is dedicated to showing what can be achieved from 100% old-vine Monastrell in the up-and-coming D.O. of Yecla. It goes without saying that the price-to-quality relationship of these wines is extraordinary.
Ruby-red. Spicy, floral aromas of bright cherry and rhubarb, complicated by minerals and pepper. Fresh red berry fruit shows very good energy and precision, with a light mineral touch on the back. This boasts impressive focus and complexity for the price.
This Spanish red is bursting with sweet red fruit. It is ripe and delicious. An everyday wine that wonrsquo;t break the bank.
Like the previous vintage of Carro, this full-bodied blend is based mostly on the grape Monastrell, and is loaded with rich, bright flavors of blackberry and blueberry with notions of dark chocolate. With no hard edges to be found, consider it an honor and a pleasure to drink a wine with this much going for it, especially at this price.
The 2008 Carro is 50% Monastrell, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo, and 10% Merlot fermented and aged in stainless steel. Purple-colored, it reveals a fragrant bouquet, of violets, damp earth, incense, and blueberry. On the palate it has surprising grip and concentration for its humble price and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will provide pleasure over the next three years.
Spain continues to produce some of the best wine values in the world. Carro, from the southern region of Yecla, is a blend of 50% Monastrell, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo and 10% Merlot. This red sees no oak, so the purity of the fruit really comes through and opens your senses to the complexity of this wine. Ripe berries, pepper, and herbs are intertwined and balanced with a surprising tannin level. The finish is long and layered in fruit. A great wine at a great price.
Deep violet. Fresh red and dark berry aromas and flavors are complemented by notes of dried rose and cracked pepper. Begins rather light but gains weight with air and finishes with good persistence and a slightly bitter edge.
The wine has a bright scarlet colour with ripe, red fruit aromas. On the palate it has freshness with good length and balance with warmth and structure; the tannins are smooth and elegant. Made from Monastrell, Syrah and Merlot grapes harvested at optimum ripeness.
