Drinking and storing
Dark, aromatic well-balanced
Here the monastrell grape, which is excellent for blending, is combined with syrah to produce an excellent everyday red wine whose quality punches way above its modest price. In my experience, Bodegas Castano wines are beautifully made and this is no exception. We will return to this wine for its qualities as an accompaniment to red meat and cheese.
Value for money
Entry level wine but good value at this price level. Straightforward example that goes down well, with or without food.

Bodegas Castaño has succeeded in giving the wine-producing region of Yecla the seal of quality that it lacked. This family-run winery has had very clear ideas about how to do things well, breaking away from clichés and changing the way of thinking of more than one winemaker worth his salt...
