Overview

The Monastrell Rosado comes from high elevation vineyards located in the northern part of the DO on rocky, limestone-rich soils. This allows the Castano family to harvest ripe, concentrated fruit for their rosé that retains a lovely balanced acidity. In recent years Castano has move from a saignée style to a direct press of Monastrell resulting in a pink wine that is more delicate, refreshing and loaded with cherry and raspberry flavors with just a hint of herbal aromas.
