Baron de Ley 2017 Finca Monasterio Rioja DOCa, Spain

Available:  Only 4 left in stock $39.99
Size: 750.00ml
The Finca Monasterio wine is made from grapevines planted in Mendavia in 1985, near the Benedictine monastery belonging to the Barón de Ley winery. The grapes are mainly Tempranillo but small amounts of other varieties are used too. They are harvested by hand. After a lengthy maceration period, lasting longer than the fermentation itself, the resulting wine has an excellent extraction of color and tannins which provide it with the profile of a modern wine with a great future. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels and then 6 months in 10,000-litre foudres made from the same oak. The wine is neither filtered nor stabilized before being released onto the market. Clear aromas of black fruit jams (blackberries and plums) dominate alongside balsamic wood, with hints of tea and herbal infusions, coconut, lactic notes, cocoa, and spices such as cloves. On the palate, the Finca Monasterio is well-structured, flavorful, balanced and elegant. Juicy and embellished with balanced tannins, it has a penetrating smoky, almost peaty, undertone. Its rounded toasty finish makes it a mouth-watering drink.
