Características de Alceño Monastrell 12
Alceño Monastrell 12 meses is a red wine from Jumilla made by Bodegas Alceño, a winery that was founded in 1870 by Roque Martinez, along with two partners. It became the first commercial winery in Jumilla. Currently, it is run by the fourth generation of the family.
The climate in this area is semi-arid, continental and Mediterranean in character. It is characterized by low rainfall throughout the year and average temperatures between 13ºC and 18ºC. This wine is a blend of Monastrell (85%) and Syrah (15%) from the oldest Monastrell grape vineyards planted on calcareous and stony soils, 600 and 800 metres above sea level. Alceño Monastrell 12 months spends four months in new French and American oak barrels (50%) to carry out the process of aging.
DO Jumilla is located on a high plain in the eastern region of Spain, acting as a transition zone between the Mediterranean coastal area and the high central plateau of Castile-La Mancha. The vineyards of Jumilla are spread over the municipality of Jumilla, in Murcia, and six counties in the southeast of the province of Albacete: Ontur, Tobarra, Albatana, Hellin, Montealegre and Fuente Alamo. The main variety of the area is the Monastrell grape variety, a noble and robust variety which produces small bunches of small dark-coloured grapes very rich in sugars and other noble components.
Midway through the 19th Century, the phylloxera plague caused an increase in the size of the Jumilla production area since many of the surrounding areas were strongly affected. Unlike today, Jumilla was not a winemaking centre at the time. However, in light of these new circumstances, Roque Martínez and two business partners founded the first commercial winery in Jumilla in 1870.
