Made with grapes of Monastrell from vineyards planted on
chalky and rocky soils very poor in nutrients and without
irrigation, to obtain this wine very aromatic together with a
high concentration of fruit. It is a pleasant and easy drinking
wine.
Its pleasing nose reveals notes of underbrush, mineral, and
blueberry leading to a savory, spicy, nicely balanced mediumbodied
wine. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Region Description

This mountainous country possesses more vineyard land than any other country on earth, and ranks third in wine production after France and Italy. Spain is best known for its red Riojas and its Sherries, however other wines and regions are quickly gaining notoriety. Like France, Spain divides wine into categories; table wine at the bottom level and quality wine at the top, with a large emphasis on geographical origin. VdM (Vino de Mesa) is a basic table wine. VC (Vino Comarcal) wines are a level up. VdlT (Vino de la Tierra) refers to one of the country’s 25 distinct regions, and each wine possesses a local character. At the top level, only about fifty wines are considered DO (Denominacion de Origen). These wines come from the best-known regions and are the equivalent of France’s Appellation Contrôlée. DOC (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) is reserved for wines that adhere to the most stringent regulations. So far, Rioja is the only wine to gain the Calificada classification.
