Reviews

D.O. Almansa

Winery Atalaya

The DO. Almansa region is located between the lands of Levant and the La Mancha plains and is known for their cultivation of two robust grape varieties: Monastrell and Garnacha Tintorera. Taking advantage of intense cold winters, a reasoned vintage and modern technology has resulted in wines with finesse and nuances very different to the hardy, concentrated, high alcohol and bulk produced wines that the region was formally known for.
