" Their entry-level Monastrell is already the 2016 La Tremenda is sourced from the vineyard that names the wine, from their estate El Chaconero in the village of Villena, a plot at 600 meters altitude planted some 25 years ago. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barriques for six months. 2016 is a cooler year than 2014 or 2015, and the wines reflect it. It was not an easy year; they had to do a strict selection of grapes, and it paid off. It has the character of the variety, with its elegant rusticity with a fresh, herbal twist and a palate with fine-grained tannins, nicely textured and with a supple, very tasty finish. This is a superb introduction to Monastrell from Alicante at an incredible price. "
" Bright ruby-red in color, this wine shows expressive notes of fresh black cherries and red berries mingled with hints of sweet spice, toast and cocoa. On the palate, this accessible red shows silky texture, liveliness and long length.
Pair it with pork chops, Kobe beef, or parmesan-crusted asparagus tips. " ~ Winery notes
Great Value - I have bought this wine numerous times, one of my everyday reds with food.I love this wine
A very good buy - On the recommendation of a friend I took a chance and ordered a full case of this Spanish red as a first-time trial. It truly is a rich and robust vintage for a very good price and I plan to reorder.
