Bodegas Castaño – Hécula Monastrell

Produced in the Yecla region in Spain made from 100% Monastrell; the Hecula Monastrell is truly moving fast in the wine industry.

Grapes were harvested in October 2014 and undergone the fermentation and maceration processes for ten days with a controlled temperature of 24 – 26ºC.

The wine’s aging process runs for six months in 80% French oak barrels and 20% American oak barrels.

The wine becomes livelier because of its intense, shiny, cherry-red tint and the ripe red fruit that blooms as consumers drink it. The fruity flavor gives more elegance to it as a whole.

Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
