A single varietal wine of this winery's predominant grape, the Monastrell, and a fine example of the Jumilla region's star indigenous variety. With its compact clusters and rounded berries, it was first mentioned to be growing there back in the 15th Century.
Aged for 4 months in French and American oak barrels.

Rich & bold!
