Additional Wine Information

Story
Though situated on the highway that connects Madrid and Barcelona, Calatayud feels a bit like a place that time forgot. Here, winemaking dates back to the Romans, and the landscape is dotted with crumbling castles and fading monasteries. Calatayud is just about the perfect growing climate for Garnacha (Grenache). Seated among craggy mountains rising from the valley floor, vineyards hang at altitudes of 1,500 to 3,000 feet. The climate is continental, with hot summers and brutally cold winters. Of greatest import are the soils, a rocky terrain of red and white slate backed by chalk-rich clay. Garnacha, a vigorous vine, needs these mineral-rich, well-draining soils to keep its vegetal growth in check and concentrate its energy into producing complex fruit. Monte Vicor, a brand owned by the fifth-generation winemaking Langa family, takes advantage of the terroir with this bright, succulent wine composed of fruit from Garnacha vineyards that average over 50 years old.
Sense
The wine's deep violet color leads to an intense nose of blackberry, red currant and nightshade with touches of smoke and bittersweet chocolate.
Savor
Full-bodied and meaty, the wine boasts deep black fruit flavors intermingled with savory notes of leather, graphite and coffee. Tannins are polished and balanced, but what stands out is the bright, taut acidity that props up the wine and pushes its flavors forward in the mouth.
Serve
Pork and lamb are the classic accompaniments to red wine in Spain, and the Monte Vicor Garnacha will be an excellent partner to both. Its medium tannins, fresh acidity and deep, juicy fruit will stand up to hearty roasts, and the wine will also be great with quick-cooking chops and meaty pastas or ragouts. Pungent seasonings like fresh herbs and garlic will complement the wine's intense flavors, while fruity accents, such as dried figs or apricots, will play to its lush side.
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 15 minutes before serving.
