  • Brand name: Monastrell Alicante
  • Sector: VINO TINTO CON D.O. CRIANZA
El vino de Alicante es un tinto de monastrell, con intenso color, aromas a fruta madura y gran estructura. Pero hoy en día es un vino moderno, elegante, con mucha expresión del terreno calcáreo donde se asienta y de gran in?uencia por las brisas marinas que configuran las comarcas vitícolas de la zona. La variedad #monastrellalicante es capaz de dar una expresión muy particular y está en clara revalorización en España. Además cuenta para su desarrollo y creatividad con otras variedades como “Alicante Bouschet”, bobal, cabernet,syrah, merlot….

Alicante is one of the most historical areas of the Iberian Peninsula. It was the “port of entry” of “vitis vinifera” and the place where a rich culture of wine was developed. The varieties settled here, like “moscatel” or “monastrell” (mourvedre), are perfect for producing naturally sweet o generous wines, white or red “mistelas”, “doble pasta” red wines, aged and old wines, and so on. But between all of them the King wine is “Fondillón”, a special wine, protected by the European Union and made with overriped monastrell. “Fondillón” is aged in barrels for minimum 10 years, with no sugar or other substances added.
