Classed as one of their 'autor' or signature wines, this is fresh and fruity in the modern style, offering a top quality 'crianza' at a good price. Great care is taken over hand-picking the choicest grapes at harvest and then selecting further on the sorting table, with each variety undergoing fermentation separately.
Garnet-cherry red in colour, it reveals a complex range of aromas, notably ripe black fruit, spices, cocoa, vanilla and toasty notes. On the palate, this is a pleasantly rich wine, with ripe and rounded tannins, that shows good acidity with a silky texture and great balance.
Aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.

This mature, dry red from Jumilla is great value. It has the texture and flavour of a wine twice this price. This is the perfect accompaniment for tapas and more intricate saffron flavoured dishes such as goat or prawn.
The taste of Spain
First enjoyed this wine in Los Alcazares and was very pleased to find it was available from Vinissimus. Great with beef or tapas. A lovely wine. The real taste of Spain.
One of the best reds from Jumilla
In my view this is the best red wine from the Jumilla region. It is deep, rich, dark and complex. Offers excellent value for a wine of this quality.
A fantastic wine of mainly monastrell. A real classic from the under rated region of Jumilla
Wir trinken diesen Wein schon lange, es stimmt eigentlich alles daran. Er ist füllig, hat eine gute Nase und der Abgang ist fulminant. Wir lieben ihn. Für uns der beste Spanier!
