La Purisima Consentido Monastrell Barrica
Monastrell is one of Spain’s true gems. Otherwise known as Mourvedre in other parts of the world—particularly the Southern Rhone in France—it is often used as a blending grape, though more and more producers are creating high-quality single varietal expressions. Monastrell is known for its full body, rich texture, and earthiness. This one is no different, with ripe black fruit flavors, a hint of herbaceousness, and rich texture. Pair me with spicy, salty, rich foods like barbecue or other hearty meat dishes.
