A sleek and layered red, featuring a concentrated range of blackberry coulis, fig cake and mocha notes, with aromatic accents of candied violet, dried thyme and minerals. Balanced and fresh, with juicy acidity and sculpted tannins that create a firm impression on the spiced finish.

Having been awarded Denominación de Origen status in 1966, it is one of Spain’s oldest appellations, and it has long been noteworthy for its rich, tannic, red wines made from Monastrell, the Spanish name for Mourvèdre.
