Natalie's Score: 87/100

Terrific value on this Jumilla medium-plus-bodied red made from 100% Monastrell wine grapes. Lost of ripe black fruit, dark plum, earthy florals, anise and smoky vanilla spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm. Pair with game stews.

Monastrell food pairings: veal, pizza, rare steak.

Alceño 12 Meses 2014 is a terrific Monastrell for the price. Fragrant with ripe dark cherries and spicy on the nose. A happy red with simple dark berry and savoury spice and dried herb flavours. Tannins are firm. Decant one hour prior to pouring with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews
