Jumilla is one of the oldest appellations in Spain. Flanked by the Castile-La Mancha plateau and the Mediterranean Sea, this place has long been known as a perfect home for the monastrell variety, perhaps second in the world only to Bandol in Provence, where it goes by the name mourvedre. We love this expression of Monastrell, it shows some restraint, teases you with raspberry, cherry and a touch of licorice. This wine would pair perfectly with anything really savory, like savory meats, mushrooms, and salty cheese. The bright acidity in the wine will reserve a spot on your table with your favorite tomato-based red sauce as well. This might be the versatile food wine you have been looking for.
