This red wine from Jumilla, Spain, is an aged Spanish red wine made from a very special combination of grape varieties.
After a meticulous vinification, the wine was aged for 13 months. The Monastrell was aged in American oak barrels and the Petit Verdot in French ones.
Finally, Casa de la Ermita Idílico 2010 was aged for a further 18 months in the cellar before its release.
Drink this wine of the Casa de la Ermita winery over the next 5-7 years.
Decant 1 hour before drinking.
Crimson red colour wine a violet hue at the rim.
Aromas of Mediterranean character, namely underbrush, dry earth, wild berries, flowers, laurel, clove and balsam.
The palate of this wine has a pleasant attack apon its entry that is slightly sweet and very typical of a Monastrell varietal wine. Bold and silky-textured, with concentrated tannins that are present but elegant. The aftertaste is long and leaves remembrances of black fruits, cocoa, menthol and blue flowers.
