Description

Yecla is one of the three DOs in Murcia that makes a range of wines based on the Monastrell grape from rosé, to rich and powerful reds, through to forti ed dessert wines, Castaño makes all these types of wines but their calling card is their vibrant and juicy version of the variety called, simply, Monastrell. This is a wine made from younger vines on the property ranging in age from 30–60 years old, all of which are located in Campo Arriba. This wine is a deep shiny cherry-red of medium intensity. Expressive aromas of well ripen red fruit (blueberry and raspberry). It is juicy and pleasantly fruity. It results well structured and balanced, rich and meaty tannins.
