Review
Monastrell made in 80 year old Conofors (think dairy tanks but made of American Oak), this wine is filtered by gravity and, following tradition, is made in a slighty oxidative style which gives the wine its very unique character.

Rating
2010: 89 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "(100% monastrell): Vivid ruby. Sexy, expressive aromas and flavors of blackberry, candied cherry and peppery spices. Sappy and seamless on the sweet, clinging finish, which features gentle floral and licorice nuances. "


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
