La Bestia Monastrell
La Bestia (The Beast) is a singular wine of great character, high quality and strictly limited production. Intensely rich, powerful and complex, with fine, silken tannins, beautifully balanced acidity, and a teasingly persistent elegance. From deliciously ripe Monastrell, hand-picked at first light from a five-hectare parcel of old, dry-grown un-grafted (pie franco) low-yielding bush vines grown on the slopes of D.O.P. Jumilla’s highest altitude vineyard. Macerated and fermented at low temperatures to preserve and develop the naturally fruit-driven intensity of the ripe Monastrell before being aged for thirteen months in the finest new, French and American oak barrels. Production is strictly limited to a few thousand numbered bottles.
