Product Description

Produced by Bodegas Volver, Tarima Hill is made from old Monastrell vineyards located at the foot of the Salinas mountains, in the northern area of DO Alicante.

The vines were planted in limestone soils between 1932 and 1975. The zone has an extreme continental climate.

Harvest was carried out meticulously. The alcoholic fermentation of this Spanish red wine took place in stainless steel tanks, while malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels.

After that, Tarima Hill 2019 was aged for 14 months in the barrels.

We suggest that you aerate this Crianza red wine about 40 minutes before you drink it.

Pair this red wine from Alicante with Ibérico ham and meat dishes.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Tarima Hill is deep cherry with a garnet rim.


The wine opens tight, but after a while this old-vines Monastrell shows a panoply of toasted notes and spices that slowly evolve into notes of ripe fruit, exotic fruit and a sophisticated touch of Havana cigars. On the background, some remembrances of dry earth.


Bold and expressive, with a clear note of liquor-infused fruit mingled with hints of toast and spices. On the background, an intriguing mineral and earthy layer. This wine from Bodegas Volver - Jorge Ordóñez has an excellent acidity, very refreshing, some ripe, savoury tannins and a long, persistent finish with a surprising touch of bitter chocolate and smoke.

Our personal opinion

A serious wine at a very affordable price, Tarima Hill 2019 is a superb Mediterranean Monastrell that will make a great pairing with, for instance, a lamb stew.
