A good way to get a feel for the quality of a producer in Burgundy is to taste their Bourgogne Rouge and one gets the feeling that Jose Maria feels the same way. The Monastrell from Casa Castillo is made from younger vines sourced mainly from La Valle. Aged for 6 months in a combination of neutral 500 liter French oak barrels, foudres and concrete, the wine is fresh, vibrant and shows a much more northern european temperament than one usually finds this far south. To capture this quality, be certain to serve this wine a cellar temperature.

Wine EnthusiastMedicinality, animal notes and rubbery scents interfere with this magenta-colored Monastrell's berry aromas. Scratchy and somewhat abrasive on the palate, with high acidity, this tastes of herbal plum and medicinal raspberry, with a gripping finish.
