4 Monos Madrid Tinto 2017
Founded by four friends in Central Spain, 4 Monos is a huge pioneer of organic farming in the Sierra de Gredos region of Spain, producing clean, high-quality wines from its mountainous and rugged terrain. ‘Tinto’ is a silky Garnacha dominant blend, 50% whole-cluster fermented with wild yeasts for 30-40 days, followed by nine months of aging in oak. Fresh and lively, this red-fruited gem is perfect for sipping chilled alongside charcuterie boards.
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.
