12 months in French oak barrels. Bodegas Atalaya was founded in 2007 by the Gil Family of Jumilla. The prominent grape variety in Almansa is Garnacha Tintorera –Alicante Bouschet- along with Monastrell. The La Atalaya is 85% Garnacha Tintorera and 15% Monastrell planted around 1000 metres -3280 feet- above sea level and aged for 12 months in French oak. It sports a glass coated with glycerin as well as a super-fragrant nose of exotic spices, lavender, incense, and black raspberry. Succulent, layered, and totally pleasure-bent, this plush offering has a smooth-as-silk finish totally unexpected from a wine of this humble price. It is an amazing value in unrestrained hedonism.
