Características de Casa Castillo Pie Franco
Casa Castillo Pie Franco is a red wine from Jumilla prepared by the Finca Casa Castillo winery. It is a Monastrell varietal.
The grapes used for this wine comes from the Pago La Solana estate. The vineyard, over 70 years old, is oriented southwest and covers an area of twelve acres.
The soil is rather sandy, on artificial slopes with a continental and Mediterranean climate. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed without crushing and placed in small underground presses in which, by manual movement, alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts is performed. This process is carried out for 12 days at a controlled temperature of 26 degrees.
The pressing is vertical and malolactic fermentation in contact with lees occurs in new French oak barrels of 500 litres.
Casa Castillo Pie Franco is finally aged in the same barrels for 22 months. Casa Castillo is located in the highlands of Jumilla and aims to produce wines with personality that express the character and uniqueness of each plot.
