MMM Macho Man Monastrell, Jumilla, Casa Rojo

The region of Jumilla is situated about 50 miles inland from the port of Alicante on the Mediterranean coast. Here, the vineyards are planted on light, sandy soils over a limestone bedrock, at altitudes up to about 800 metres above sea level; Monastrell is the main grape of the region. Hand-harvested grapes from very old vines provide the raw material for this big, boisterous, fruit-packed wine; four months in oak barrels provides a touch of softness and spice. The 2013 vintage was named in the top 100 wines in the Wines from Spain Awards 2015, the judging was chaired by Tim Atkin MW.
