25/10/2012 AlFynal praised in a Spanish review from El Mundo
In this article of the spanish review La Luna de Metropoli (El Mundo) dated october 19th 2012, Luis Gutierrez explains how the Monastrell grape variety is reestablishing its prestige after being snubbed for several years. It is now among the best-quality and most-appreciated varieties in Spain.
Planted all along the Mediterranean cost (South of France, Catalogna and mostly Alicante and Murcia), the Monastrell is nowadays the most cultivated grape variety in Spain, just after the Tempranillo.
The wines produced from this typical variety gain elegance and sophistication with years and can reveal notes of spices, truffle or liquorice. So far, several vineyards have contributed to maintain the quality level in the growing of Monastrell, such as Iberica Bruno Prats in Alicante. Since 2009, they have been producing a 100% Monastrell old-vines wine named AlfYnal.
