The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards in the Yecla DO in south-eastern Spain. 80% of these vineyards are planted with the native Monastrell variety. For several generations, Bodegas Castaño has been a pioneer in this region and has come to symbolise the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude, resulting in wines of great character and finesse.
This wine is deep purple in colour. On the nose, there are intense aromas of black candied fruit, raisins, carob and black olives. It is fresh on the palate, with notes of plum jam and dried fig which are complemented by a clean acidity that balances the sweetness.
