Alto Moncayo comes from 40-60 year old vines. Fantastic, balanced, complex, full-bodied red wine. Ripe red fruit, cocoa, minerals, roasted tones. In the mouth the Moncayo has a full, powerful and juicy taste with sweet ripe berries. milk chocolate and is slightly peppery in nature. Fortunately, good acidity provides sufficient refreshment to the ripe fruit, achieving a beautiful balance and a long, impressive aftertaste. For lovers of powerful yet elegant work!

This Alto Moncayo belongs to the list of wines that once in its life received the maximum score of 100 points from Parker (the 2013 vintage - see appendix with overview of ratings).

ABOUT ALTO MONCAYO

Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a winery located in the Campo de Borja Denominación de Origen (DO, Wine Quality Standard) area. It was founded in 2002 with the aim of making it a world reference for Garnacha wines of the highest quality, made from indigenous grape varieties. The bodega is located in the highest part of the town of Borja, about 500 meters above sea level. Due to its proximity to Mount Moncayo, the climate here is particularly cool and dry continental. The indigenous Garnacha grapes of Alto Moncayo, together with the microclimate to which they are exposed, the soil type, the orientation and the professional treatment, form the authentic indigenous terroir, an interaction that produces wines that are unique and distinctive in the world. The old Garnacha varieties are found on the foothills of the Glacis, the mountains of Ainzón, Fuendejalón and Tabuenca. These are very stony, with slight additions of limestone, marl, dolomite, quartzite and slate. These are very well-drained soils that allow water to seep into and retain the deeper clay layers.
