Characteristics of Barón de Ley Finca Monasterio
Finca Monasterio is a red wine from the D.O. Rioja made by Barón de Ley. This wine is made exclusively with grapes from a vineyard planted around the 17th century Benedictine Monastery in Mendavia (Rioja Baja), the winery Barón de Ley's headquarters. It's a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% other varieties (including Cabernet Sauvignon) and is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. It then remains in French oak "foudres" of 10,000 litre capacity for 6 months. Finca Monasterio is bottled without being subject to any filtration or stabilisation, therefore natural sediments may be found in the wine.

SightDeep cherry red colour with violet edges. High robe, bright.NoseHigh-intensity nose in which ripe, black and juicy fruit stands out, together with pleasant toasted, spiced and roasted hints appear little by little. A very harmonious nose.TasteIn the mouth, it is a red wine which shows power and body in the perfect measure. It has a mid-palate marked by a great acidity and a ripe and sweet tannic sensation. It is like in the nose harmonious and balanced. Long and persistent finish which leaves intense, fruity and toasted notes at retro-olfaction.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
Barón de Ley is one of those Rioja wineries whose first wines were born with a true vocation for the future. There has probably never been a winery in the area of La Rioja of the Navarre area that has been as controversial as Barón de Ley, where the modern character of its wines encountered the first renewed tastes. And Barón de Ley, after a few years producing test wines for another winery, was very clear as to what they wanted to be and what they wanted to do: a winery with a châteaux philosophy, with its own vineyards and a limited production, based on the concept of making single-vineyard wines, modern, in the Bordeaux style but with Rioja class.
