2020 Casa Castillo Monastrell

Led by José María Vicente, Casa Castillo are at the forefront of new wave Spanish producers unleashing the potential of their sites, and raising the bar for what's possible with the local specialty Monastrell (Mourvèdre). Jumilla is a brutal landscape, with baking hot days and cold nights, leading to many wines that are rich, jammy, and often overdone. Casa Castillo is the antithesis of this approach, their wines are refined and detailed, elegant even, and clearly leagues ahead of anything else produced in the region. José María is constantly aiming to do things the best way rather than the easiest, which is rewarding handsomely for the team with Casa Castillo now considered among the top handful of Spanish producers.
