Alceño Monastrell Dulce 2010
The 2010 Alceno Dulce Monastrell is produced from 30-year-old Monastrell vines grown on calcareous, stony soils, yielding 750 grams of grapes per vine. The grapes are cooled and cold-macerated during 15 days, then fortified, macerated for 10 days, and aged for one year in oak barrels. 254 grams of residual sugar remain in the wine. Very ripe plums with freshness, some violets and a very spicy profile (nutmeg, clove and cinnamon), mixing bitter and sweet sensations. With time and air it develops a very clear note of curry. A sweet wine of strong personality. The velvety, dense palate is long, with flavors of dry figs and raisins which still manage to keep the character of the Monastrell. The wine is lifted by a mineral note, ending very sweet. 12,000 half-bottles were produced. Drink 2013- 2018. Score - 91. (Luis Gutierrez,, Oct. 2013)
