Monastrell is the classic grape of Jumilla, and the Altos de la Hoya aims to capture its essence. Deep ruby. Ripe, powerful scents of red and dark fruits, minerals and spices. Finishes fresh and long, with a repeating dark fruit note. It pairs well with red meats and stews.
A great value wine. It's also special in that the vineyards survived Phylloxera, thanks in part to their sandy soil type, which means that they survived on their original rootstocks. This wine is made solely from old ungrafted vineyards. Vinous and Wine Advocate rated the 2016 vintage 90 points.
