The Spanish red wine Carmine is a single varietal Monastrell produced by winemaker Gabriel Martínez Valero.
This time, the wine comes with a new packaging.
It is made from vineyards belonging to the Jumilla DO, and located at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level.
Produced by Crápula Wines, the grapes of this Crianza red wine were first destemmed, and then fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks.
After that, Carmine Monastrell 2010 was aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.
Finally, this Monastrell from Jumilla was naturally clarified and stabilized.
Drink until 2021. Decant 1 hour before drinking.
Carmine Monastrell by the Crápula Wines winery has an intense cherry colour with a ruby rim.
Intense and fresh on the nose, this Monastrell from Jumilla begins by showing aromas of ripe red fruit, cinnamon, vanilla and coco, evolving into Mediterranean herbs and fry fruit.
This Crianza red wine by Crápula Wines is yummy and silky. Ripe fruit, some creamy and toasted nuances and some remembrances of blue flowers. Fresh acidity and ripe tannins, with a long, toasted finish.
