Atico Monastrell hails from the stunning Mediterranean coast of Spain near Valencia. While Valencia may not be on the top of your list when you think of Spanish wine production, the region does produce about 5% of Spain’s grapes and is the 4th most widely planted of the country’s 17 wine regions.
The climate produced by the Mediterranean Sea meeting the arid desert region is what makes the grapes from this region so unique. This Monastrell is rich, fruity and full-bodied. Like any great Monastrell, this wine is berry-forward with a hint of spice and licorice.
