SightThe tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.TasteThis wine is similar on the palate as it is in the nose. It is marked by a fleshy ripe red fruit flavour which is matched with fine toasted and spicy notes. Ripe, sweet and tasty tannins are refreshed by a magnificent acidity, well-integrated and very well defined resulting in a long and profound gulp.
SightHigh robe. Ruby red colour, intense, with brick red sparkles from its ageing. Thin and abundant tear.NoseIn the nose, it is very mineral, with reminiscences of graphite, hummus, black stones and land recently cultivated; these mineral aromas are finally mixed with very ripe black fruit, with spiced, balsamic and floral notes such as the violet. Complex and very pleasant nose.TasteIn the mouth, it is a very balanced red wine, which blends powerful and elegant with a firm tannic load and an excellent, deep and defined acidity. The aftertaste is large and harmonious, giving the smoked and toasted notes back from its ageing in barrels. Excellent value (and pleasure) for money. A serious, elegant and great red wine.
SightAttractive and intense cherry red colour.NoseGreat aromatic wealth: mineral background, presence of red fruit together with spices and smoked hints, which perfectly combine with pastry notes and floral touches.TasteFull-bodied wine, very large. It fills the mouth with creamy and velvelty flavours. Present but very pleasant acidity. Very long and persistent finish with fruity notes. A suggestive wine to be enjoyed calmly.

There is no doubt that the Monastrell grape variety has become a fashionable grape variety. This region is home to over half a dozen cooperatives, which have been at the forefront of a wine revolution, making wines that are respectful to the local culture the area, cultivating vines with care, selecting only the best fruit and producing wines that faithfully express character of the terroir. These wines are easy to identify, due to the fact the estate or vineyard from which they came from is usually printed on their label. Also, their authenticity and quality can be guaranteed by the DO Alicante, which not only certifies the farms, but also everything posted on the wines labeling.
