Label Notes:

Castillo de Monseran comes from the region of Cariñena, in the heart of the Aragon and the home of the garnacha grape.

The grapes were shortly macerated and then coolly fermented to make a soft full flavored wine with intense color and well-balanced red fruit finish. To be drunk with all meat dishes or slighlty chilled with any starter.
