2011 Bodegas Castano - Monastrell Yecla "Ecologico"
"The Castano family has pioneered growing Monastrell, a.k.a. Mourvedre, in the DO of Yecla. The appellation is situated in Murcia, just inland from the Mediterranean in eastern Spain on an ancient bedrock of limestone. The extreme temperature fluctuations yield hot dry summers and long, cold winters--just right for this thick-skinned, high antioxidant grape. The Castanos farm organically, and they ferment the grapes in stainless steel to preserve their natural freshness. Deep and inky with abundant notes of Morello cherries, this bottle might just be your go-to cuvee for end-of-season barbecues and fall stews." -SFWTC Staff
