Primitivo Quiles Cono 4 2013

Primitivo Quiles Cono 4 2013

Sku: 044866

Here is a perfect example of what Spain's many lesser known D.O.s are capable of when good vineyards are combined with sensible, traditionally minded work in the cellar. Composed of 100% Monastrell, this wine is all black olives and meaty, savory characteristics on the nose, with a savory dark fruited palate that also boasts balanced acidity, very good minerality and a discreet orange peel aspect on the finish. Wine made from Monastrell grapes, picked at the right time, fermented and aged in 80 year old oak foudres, sure does taste good. Try this with braised meat.

Technical notes
Senor Don Primitivo Quiles is one of the great figures of Spanish wine. His bodega in Monovar is the oldest in Alicante (since 1780), and probably in all the comunidad Valenciana. The Fondillon is 100% Monastrell harvested in late October or November then placed in a Solera system that began in 1948. While the Cono 4 is a joven style made in large cono foudres that is a great expression of the warm Alicante climate yet also very earthy and complex
