Red Wine from D.O. Yecla, 70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet sauvignon.
The name of this wine is due to the age of the vineyards from which come its grapes, with 45 years of age for the case of Monastrell. This is a coupage of the Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, which results in a smooth mouth with slightly elegant but elegant tannins and an end with plenty of persistence. A perfect opportunity to know the benefits of the best wines of Yecla.
Grapes from Vineyards located at an altitude of 750 meters, with north-south orientation. Type of short pruning, with potting (for Monastrell) and low yielding trellis (for Cabernet Sauvignon). Density of planting of 1600 strains per hectare.

Consumption optimum from the moment of purchase.
Ramón Castaño Santa’s relationship with the world of wine goes back several generations, both winemakers and processors. In 1950, Ramón built a new winery, updating the technical means with which he counted and expanding the family vineyards.
In 1975 it acquired its first vineyards in the place of “Las Gruesas”, but it was not until 1980 when it began to bottle, an attitude that seemed too daring in the then conservative wine world of Yecla.
The gradual incorporation of his three children – Ramón, Juan Pedro and Daniel – to the family winery throughout the 1980s brought a new approach: strengthening national markets and beginning a stage of expansion into international markets.
