The 200 Monges Reserva is an elegant Reserva red wine made from superior quality, hand harvested Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuela grapes that grow on 30 year old vines. The grapes undergo traditional vinification and fermentation takes place in French oak barrels from Allier. The wine is matured for 24 months in French oak barrels, followed by 15 months of resting in bottles. It has an appealing dark cherry colored body with maroon edges. The nose is dominated by lively aromas of ripe red fruits combined with sweet spices, tobacco and aging notes of oak. It has a powerful and surprising entry into the palate, followed by a smooth and silky mid palate with well-integrated tannins and a prolonged finish, and is an ideal companion for rice dishes, grilled red meat, game dishes and mature cheese.
