"Another spicy monastrell with plums and blackberries and a mix of herbs, spices and cocoa nibs. Juicy, with a medium to full body, plush tannins and a velvety texture. Plush and very smooth with rich, succulent fruit. From organically grown grapes. "

This is a wine made from younger vines on the property ranging in age from 3060 years old, all of which are located in Campo Arriba. Here the soils are high in limestone and the elevation ensures plenty of freshness in the finished wines. The Monastrell is harvested by hand, fermented semi-carbonically with 25-30% whole clusters in stainless steel tanks with a short maceration and aged in concrete for 4-6 months before bottling.

Murcia, the land that stretches from the northeastern border of Andalusia to the southwestern edge of Valencia, is blessed with a warm, dry, Mediterranean climate an ideal place to grow Monastrell. Yecla is one of the three DOs in Murcia that makes a range of wines based on the Monastrell grape from ros to rich and powerful reds through to fortified dessert wines, Castao makes all these types of wines but their calling card is their vibrant and juicy version of the variety called, simply, Monastrell.
About Bodegas Castaño
The Castaño family are the original pioneers of the DO Yecla, beginning with Ramon Castaño. His conviction, perseverance and determination have all been necessary in achieving the highest quality wine with the most planted grape variety in the area: the Monastrell. Ramon's relationship with the world of wines dates back several generations with a family history of vine cultivation and winemakers. He built the new winery in 1950, modernizing and upgrading the technical methods by which the family vines were worked, and bottled the first wines in 1980. The gradual incorporation of his three sons into the family winery throughout the period of the 80s brought with it a new focus: to reinforce their presence in the national market and begin a new stage of expansion at the international level. With this, the Castaños continued to innovate and improve the reputation of Monastrell from Yecla in domestic and export markets.

The 500+ hectares of vineyards are grouped into four estates – Las Gruesas, El Espinal, Pozuelo and Arabí – with soils ranging from rocky limestone to clay. The primary grape is Monastrell followed in importance by Garnacha Tintorera and Cabernet Sauvignon, but there are also smaller plantings of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Garnacha, Macabeo, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The impressive size of Bodegas Castaño allows for individualized and specialized fermentation, which in turn facilitates a more dynamic winemaking approach.

Bodegas Castaño is now recognized as one of the most respected wine producers in Southeastern Spain in recognition for their tradition and achievements in the use of the indigenous grape varieties. With a clear innovative spirit, the Castaño family has incorporated avant-garde technologies and the latest vinification systems to keep alive the legacy of their ancestors, an inherited passion for the deeply rooted Monastrell, the king variety in Yecla.
