Characteristics of Tarima Hill
Tarima Hillis a red wine from D.O. Alicante produced byBodegas Volver in Pinoso, a town in Alicante with a great wine tradition. The winery was founded in 2004 by Rafael Cañizares, a renowned oenologist in the area of La Mancha, and Jorge Ordoñez, a well-known imported of Spanish wines. All its vineyards are planted in vase-shape, so agriculture is carried out traditionally with no machinery.
This wine is a single-variety of Monastrell from old vineyards that are between 40 and 75 years old located in Sierra de la Sima. The altitude of the vineyards provides a particular microclimate, continental with Mediterranean influences, that causes temperature variations between day and night. This results in a good balance between the optimal ripening and the acidity that gives the wine a touch of freshness.
The grapes are harvested manually and refined for 14 months in French oak barrels.
