Ratings and awards
Quality wine at a bargain price
Recently bought 14 bottles of this following reading the description on the website. I usually stick to Parker's recommendations and whilst this was not one, Parker rated it highly in the description. I was not disappointed, even the heavy bottle and label screamed quality. The taste is very subtle and smooth, with its storage in oak barrels providing a further smokiness. At just over €5 a bottle its an absolute bargain, I believe that you would struggle to find a better wine at this price.by: Stephen17 (20/06/2018) - Vintage 2016
Forward and honest
A full clean example of this grape variety. As far as I can tell it is un-oaked and yet is not at all harsh. Good fruit and a rounded feel in the mouth, with a strong finish. Good value.by: Pauline Astbury (02/01/2017) - Vintage 2014
A very good wine.
This wine is full bodied, rounded, with good flavor. It is of higher quality than it's price suggests, and punches well above it's weight. Excellent value for money.by: Ailecnotrehta (18/12/2018) - Vintage 2016
Great wine from a great grape
This is a lovely wine, at a great price. You can pay more buying direct in the UK! Vinissimus service is so reliableby: K Combes (28/10/2020) - Vintage 2018
Excellent wine at a great price. Smooth, full bodied red. Superb with red meat.
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...
