Great value wine that displays the of the quality and diversity of Spanish wines. It has aromas of blackcurrant and soft blackberry that follow on to the palate where the dark fruit mingles with peppery spice to create a very pleasing, well-rounded and easy drinking wine.
"Appealingly soft, juicy Spanish red. Easy to drink on its own, better with tapas." - Fiona Beckett, The Guardian October 2023
"Monastrell is the Spanish name for the Mourvèdre grape and it thrives in hot regions like Jumilla. This example from family owned winery Alceno is ripe, fruity & delicious. I'd enjoy this with a few plates of meaty tapas."
Alceño is a family owned winery that has been making wines in Jumilla since 1870. They specialise in making wines from old vine Monastrell that are true to terroir but offer freshness and intense fruit character. Jumilla is a wine region in Southeastern Spain located in the province of Murcia.
