4 Monos Madrid Tinto 2016
Head just 80 kilometers west of Madrid and you’ll find yourself at the Sierra de Gredos, a stunning mountain range soaring at altitudes of 600 - 1200 meters above sea level. Here, the ‘four monkeys,’ a group of local friends, come together to create this gorgeous Garnacha-based red. 50% whole cluster leaves the wine crunchy and fresh, followed by aging in used barrels for nine months.
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
