Characteristics of Ramblis Monastrell
Ramblís Monastrell is a red wine made in the D.O. Alicante by Bernabe Navarro in Villena, Alicante.
Bernabe Navarro makes this wine with the Monastrell variety. The Usaldón estate - Pago de El Sorchantre - is situated 700 metres above sea level in Villena, and the average age of the vines is between 60-70 years old. The soil is mainly made up of limestone with a large quantity of stones and pebbles. The vineyard is cultivated ecologically, without any herbicides or synthetic products.
50% of Ramblís Monastrell's grapes are destemmed and the rest is left to ferment with the entire grapes. After finishing fermentation, it is pressed and decanted into 300 litre French oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 6 months. Throughout production, no oenological products are used.
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.
