Professional Wine Reviews for Alto Moncayo Campo De Borja Alto 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
Bright violet color. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, candied flowers, vanilla and incense, with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors that show surprising vivacity and a touch of back end spiciness. Finishes very long and energetic, with supple tannins building slowly and in harmony with the wine's intense fruit. This suave bottling, which is sourced from vines that were planted between 1910 and 1967, was aged in new French and American oak barrels for 22 months. (Galloni)

Additional Information on Alto Moncayo Campo De Borja Alto 2013

Winery: Alto Moncayo

Varietal: Grenache

For many centuries now, vintners in the dry and arid regions of Europe have been growing the purple skinned fruits of the Grenache vines for use in a wide range of different wines. Their influence and popularity led to them being planted all over the New World in any region with the correct climatic conditions for them to thrive in, away from the damp or wet weather which causes this particular varietal to very easily rot. Grenache grapes are prized by many as a result of their spicy berry flavors, and the fact that they have a relatively high alcohol content in the bottle. This has led to them being often used as a blending grape, although single variety bottles are also common and make the most of their light body and interesting, rich flavors

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
