Cariñena is a Do (denomination of origin) in northern Spain. Winemaking in the area dates back to at least Roman times, and records from that era confirm that locals drank Cariñena wines mixed with honey. Cariñena is well known for its red wines, most notably Garnacha and white wines from Macabeo grapes.

 

Nestled in the historical heart of the village of Cariñena, Bodegas y Viñedos Monfil belongs to one of the oldest wineries of the denomination of origin (D.O.) of Cariñena. Established in 1945, Bodegas y Viñedos Monfil is currently managed by three siblings; Victor, Maria and Ana, who are commited to creating wines of the highest quality.

 

Tasting Notes

 

Made from 35 year old vines in Carinena, this is an elegant wine with a prominence of concentrated black fruit aromas on the nose. A classic Garnacha, bursting full of blackcurrants, blackberries and plum. The palate is velvety and smooth with silky tannins and exceptional length.
