"An astonishing and remarkable product at this price" - Robert Parker
Hecula, THE Spanish reference that never disappoints, proves again its essential status with this new 2014 vintage!
Made from old vines aged 60 to 80 years planted on calcareous soils, this wine - 100% Monastrell - remains one of the greatest successes of Bodegas Castano.
One can not long resist to its red cherry colour! On the nose, fruits and spices jostle with armony and irresistible indulgence. A treat for the taste buds and a model of balance.
Robert Parker: "The wine has a fabulous texture, a deep ruby colour, a lot of chalky minerality coupled with hints of blue and black fruits. The wine is rich, concentrated, very tasty and full in the mouth. It is an astonishing and remarkable product at this price. Indeed, it is probably too good because most people are not ready to believe that a wine can be exceptional below $12. And yet this is the case"
